The problems of housing crises, gentrification, homelessness, unfettered real estate capital and unregulated development are hardly unfamiliar issues. Their effects are everywhere apparent in the modern city. For many, they are considered simply the unfortunate but inevitable cost of urban life. Keith Jacobs argues that the housing crisis is neither inevitable nor permanent and offers an historical account of how we got here.
