y issues.

  • Topical coverage of housing at the personal, community, and societal levels.
    • Offers help with personal housing choices, provides background for professionals in housing related careers, and creates awareness of the role housing plays in the world in which we live.
  • Comprehensive coverage.
    • Explores the major role housing plays in the economy, and how it affects our behavior and culture.
  • Tables, illustrations, photographs, and commentaries -Expand on the basic material presented.
