Description : During the 1870s, a major polemical debate unfolded in Germany's worker/democratic press on the shortage of housing available to workers in major industrial centres. The influx and increase of the proletariat created a housing crisis. On June 26 1872, Engels contributed the first of a series of articles to the Volksstaat, entitled "The Housing Question." The last appeared on February 22 1873. Engels' central point was that the revolutionary class policy of the proletariat cannot be replaced by a policy of reforms, because "it is not that the solution of the housing question simultaneously solves the social question, but that only by the solution of the social question, that is, by the abolition of the capitalist mode of production, is the solution of the housing question made possible." The series criticizes Proudhonism (and petty-bourgeois socialism in general, including Lassalleanism). It also discusses things like the nature of the State, the dictatorship of the proletariat, the eradication of the antithesis between town and country, the solution of the agrarian problem, forms of the socialist reconstruction of society and the tasks of the proletarian party.

Description : In the wake of the Great Recession, housing and its financing suddenly re-emerged as questions of significant public concern. Yet both public and academic debates about housing have remained constricted, tending not to explore how the evolution of housing simultaneously entails basic forms of socio-spatial reproduction and underlying tensions in the political order. Drawing on cutting edge perspectives from urban studies, this book grants renewed, interdisciplinary energy to the housing question. It explores how housing raises a series of vexing issues surrounding rights, identity, and justice in the modern city. Through finely detailed studies that illuminate national and regional particularities- ranging from analyses of urban planning in the Soviet Union, the post-Katrina reconstruction of New Orleans, to squatting in contemporary Lima - the volume underscores how housing questions matter in a wide range of contexts. It draws attention to ruptures and continuities between high modernist and neoliberal forms of urbanism, demonstrating how housing and the dilemmas surrounding it are central to governance and the production of space in a rapidly urbanizing world.

Description : This book presents the history of modern architecture in Swedish housing. It is essential reading, especially at a time when a lack of accommodation is having such a brutal impact on Swedish society. However, this has not always been the case. Decisive public policies implemented during the 20th century led to an exemplary democratisation process of housing, unparalleled in terms of equality and inclusiveness. The first part of the book presents an overview of housing responses in Sweden. It dissects the housing question, describing it as a multidimensional phenomenon that cannot be addressed without considering social, political and economic circumstances.The second part compiles texts and materials from the exhibition Bo. Nu. D�: Bostadsfr�gor och svar under 99 �r (Housing. Now.Then: 99 Years of Housing Issues and Responses) held at ArkDes in 2016 and curated by Dan Hallemar. Based on the rich ArkDes collections, the book features examples of architectural solutions to the housing question from 1917 to the present. 99 Years of the Housing Question in Sweden brings together different perspectives, contributions, accounts and critiques from specialists and citizens alike, each illustrating in its own way how modern Swedish housing and society have developed and evolved hand in hand. The result is an important but relatively unknown discourse on the role of housing in the construction of the welfare state which offers vital lessons for todays world.

Description : Since the early 1990s, Russia's housing system, along with many other spheres of social life, has been undergoing radical changes, involving a shift from a state-led planned socialist system to that based on market principles. These reforms have generated multiple contradictions in the organization of housing and residential life, such as a fragmented housing policy, intensified residential inequalities, rapidly degrading Soviet era housing, and a situation when the majority of the population have little prospect of sustainability improving their housing status. Yet, at present, there is no comprehensive theory-driven analysis that would explore these complex and important developments and contradictions. This study aims at building a more comprehensive understanding of the housing and residential condition by integrating a critical geographical imagination into both classic and contemporary politico-economic thoughts in relation to the housing question. The study argues that housing is a central facet of 'the web of life' and is a socio-spatial arena through which the capitalist regime establishes itself in everyday life and where it is contested. Capitalism subjects hitherto universal housing and residential spaces to the praxis of accumulation by disposession, by which a scarcity of quality residential life is being created and, thus, new opportunities for extra profits are generated. Constituting these processes are new housing ideologies and practices that promote the reorganization of the complex matrix of socio-spatial relations centring on housing, from urban to national scales and along multiple spatialities. The argument develops through a set of cumulative approximations and case studies. Firstly, the processes of gentrification and a more systematic strategy of residential 'elitification' are discussed, by means of which urban space is structured according to residential 'prestige', producing exclusionary 'golden islands' of wealth accumulation. Secondly, the study moves on to reveal how the so-called national affordable housing project revokes the universal right to housing as inherited from the Soviet system to withdraw the state and to formulate new meanings and practices that only assist the more powerful interests. Thirdly, the study looks at how privatization and financialization spread into Soviet- era multi family housing spaces by reforming the existing socio-physical infrastructure that maintains these areas. It looks at how the hitherto universal housing and utility services undergo destructive fragmentation and wealth transfer. It is through this chaotic fragmentation of housing and residential life that the new commodity capitalism introduces and reproduces itself while also bringing serious contradictions into urban socio-spatial organization, with implications for social reproduction. Overall, the thesis proposes a unified conceptualisation of the housing and residential changes based on a critical ontology of space. It develops an understanding of housing beyond physical changes and abstract market representations to reveal housing as 'socio-spatial praxis' of capitalism and a means of class transformation. The study also sets a new agenda for policy and research, which reconsiders the housing question as a socio-spatial justice question.
