Housing, the State, and the Poor: Policy and Practice in Three Latin American Cities
Cambridge University Press
Housing, the State and the Poor: Policy and Practice in Three Latin American Cities, (Cambridge University Press) by LBJ School Professor Peter Ward with Alan Gilbert, is concerned with the housing and service needs of the poor in Latin American and how they are articulated and satisfied. It examines the aims and implementation of government policies towards low-income housing dwellers and tries to relate those policies to the wider interests of the state.
This book will interest not only those concerned with housing and planning but also those who wish to understand social and economic policies towards the poor in most kinds of developing countries.
