Description - Housing the Poor in the Developing World by Graham Tipple

The methodology of housing and planning in the developing world has largely been adapted from practice in post-industrial countries. This book aims to show how methods of analysis can be best suited to the local context. It meets the need to bring together methods of analysis from several disciplines which can be applied to housing - each method presented and illustrated with a case study to show how it can be used to inform housing policy in a wide range of countries in all parts of the developing world. The methods presented range from intuitive to highly structured and from those dealing with the house and neighbourhood level to those which analyze city or country-wide issues. Unlike other books in the field, this concentrates on the methods of analysis rather than the housing policies and programmes, and argues that expediency should not be the only factor in determining such policies. This book should be of interest to students and professionals in the fields of development studies, housing studies and human geography.
