Glyn Robbins is a London (UK) - based housing worker and campaigner.  His articles about housing and urban policy appear regularly in the labour movement and housing press and have also been published by The Guardian.  Glyn is an active trade unionist and socialist and has a PhD in urban policy.  This is his first book.
 

“I don’t know of any text that takes on as many of the key housing challenges in a single volume.  It’s also unusual because it’s grounded by clearly voiced views of local housing activists.”  Professor Larry Vale, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
 
"A fascinating insight into the way that different policies in the US and Britain have inexorably driven housing toward crisis point. It is methodical, well-researched and will be accessible to a wide range of audiences, but is especially valuable for giving voice to the people for whom inadequate housing and homelessness is a constant presence in their lives. I will recommend this book to everyone I know"  Suz Muna, branch sec. Unite housing workers
 
“This is a gripping and thoroughly accessible read: an essential tool for everyone concerned with the housing crisis - what needs to be done and what activists are doing to campaign for secure, affordable housing for all.” Professor Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths, University of London
 
“Glyn Robbins brings a sharp and sympathetic eye to contemporary US struggles to Save Our Homes in the face of privatisation, deregulation and cuts.  Readers will find much to resonate and reflect on as global capital tightens its death grip on our communities." Michael Kane, Executive Director, National Alliance of HUD Tenants
