Home: Why Public Housing is the Answer – Eoin Ó Broin

New in stock is “Home: Why Public Housing is the Answer”, by Eoin Ó Broin.


The Book

Thousands are homeless, tens of thousands are languishing on social housing waiting lists, even more are unable to afford to rent or buy. Why is our housing system so dysfunctional? Why can it not meet social and affordable housing needs?
“Home: Why Public Housing is the Answer” examines the structural causes of our housing emergency, provides a detailed critique of government housing policy from the 1980s to the present and outlines a comprehensive, practical and radical alternative that would meet the housing needs of the many, not just the few.
