HOUSING IN 21ST-CENTURY AUSTRALIA: PEOPLE, PRACTICES AND POLICIES. Ed. by Rae Dufty-Jones and Dallas Rogers. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2015. 254 pp. with 12 ills. 25 x 18 cm. LC 2015-8820 ISBN 9781472431134 In English.
Publisher's description: Over the last two decades new and significant demographic, economic, social and environmental changes and challenges have shaped the production and consumption of housing in Australia and the policy settings that attempt to guide these processes. These changes and challenges, as outlined in this book, are many and varied. While these issues are new they raise timeless questions around affordability, access, density, quantity, type and location of housing needed in Australian towns and cities. The studies presented in this text also provide a unique insight into a range of housing production, consumption and policy issues that, while based in Australia, have implications that go beyond this national context. For instance how do suburban-based societies adjust to the realities of aging populations, anthropogenic climate change and the significant implications such change has for housing? How has policy been translated and assembled in specific national contexts? Similarly, what are the significantly different policy settings the production and consumption of housing in a post-Global Financial Crisis period require? Framed in this way this book accounts for and responds to some of the key housing issues of the 21st century.
