"A useful resource for planners an activist working on housing development. It provides a wealth of information about the positive and negative outcomes of various federal and local initiatives."
—International Journal of Urban and Regional Research
"[L]ittle work has been done to show that a community-based housing program is a viable alternative. Rachel Bratt's new book...fills this void nicely by giving a detailed account of the recent emergence of community-based housing programs....Bratt is perhaps the country's leading expert in this area....While the main emphasis of the book is on community-based housing programs, an additional plus is a critical review of the history of United States housing programs which I found illuminating and insightful."
