Reviews

"Colburn and Aldern's analysis is essential and convincing, providing a framework for understanding the root causes of homelessness."

-- "San Francisco Examiner"
"The book's central question is this: What might explain the substantial regional variation in per capita homeless rates in the United States? The answers may not surprise everyone, but the authors' route to their conclusions will both inform and inspire. . . . There is plenty of material in the book for individuals wondering how to advocate for affordable housing, churches discerning giving or leasing land for housing, and communities that want to be proactive and avoid a housing crisis."-- "Christian Century"
"Ultimately, Homelessness Is a Housing Problem should erase any doubt about the powerful role of housing markets in creating homelessness. Written with straightforward prose and digestible empirical analyses suitable for academic and lay audiences alike, the book will serve as a useful resource for planners seeking to dispel myths about homelessness and zero in on its causes."-- "Journal of the American Planning Association"
"Timely and readable."-- "Journal of Urban Affairs"
