Praise

“Excellent.”
—Charles Mudede, The Stranger

“An accessible, jargon-free account of how housing works under capitalism and a clarion call for how we can—and must—change it.”
Socialist Review

“A critical analysis of the nature of the housing crisis within a political economy perspective. The authors highlight a conflict between housing as home and as real estate for profit making and focus upon processes of commodification of housing, power and exploitation, and inequality and injustice in contemporary capitalist society … A significant contribution to urban planning, sociology, and public policy.”
—D.A. Chekki, Choice

In Defense of Housing clearly lays out the systemic nature of the housing crisis and seamlessly breaks down complicated economic concepts. Madden and Marcuse gently disabuse readers of illusions that the end of the housing crisis is just a policy tweak away.”
—James Tracy, Rooflines
