Fierce, incisive, important. Anyone who lives or works in a building should read this book (Will Self)

'Anna Minton goes digging into the housing crisis in London and beyond. She gives us an account that indicates the crisis was made through decisions and willful distortions ... reads like a sort of murder mystery fully exposed' Saskia Sassen, author of Expulsions

We all need a place to live, but in London - and now much of the UK - housing is a financial asset rather than a basic right. Despite a desperate shortage, thousands of affordable homes are being demolished, replaced by luxury private apartments. The flow of global capital controls the market. Who is this city for?

Drawing on original research and bringing us the individual stories of those whose lives are ruled by the housing crisis, Anna Minton cuts through the complexities and jargon to give a compelling, clear-sighted account of what has led to this predicament, and how we might get out of it.
