Housing policy transformed

The right to buy and the desire to own

This book seeks to understand the Right to Buy, the most controversial housing policy of the last 30 years, on its own terms, rather than most studies which focus on its negative impact. It explains how the policy links with a coherent ideology based on self-interest and the care of things close to us.
