Forced in the 1980s to develop new sources of funding, municipalities are now creating new strategies for producing housing citizens can afford. One of the most promising of those schemes is third sector housing, a private non market alternative to publicly owned projects. The ten essays comprising The Affordable City provide case studies of political struggles to move toward this model in such cities as Burlington, Boston, and San Diego.
Contributors: Peter Dreier, J. David Hulchanski, Helen S. Cohen, Rachel G. Gratt, Woody Widrow, Chuck Collins, Kirby White, Allan Mallach, Mary E. Brooks, Nico Calavita, Kenneth Grimes, Susan Reynolds, and the editor.
