Professor Becky Tunstall publishes 'The Rise and Fall of Social Housing'

Posted on 9 March 2020

Professor Becky Tunstall's book, "The Fall and Rise of social housing: 100 years on 20 estates" is out now.

Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford, says it’s "a wonderful book" and Professor Kate Pickett at the University of York says, "scholarly and fascinating... combines rigorous statistics and the lived experience of council estate residents over time".

The book draws on a unique archive spanning the lifetime of twenty council estate projects in the UK and using hundreds of resident voices, exploring council housing’s failures and successes and the reasons for them.
