Book Description:
A house generally refers to a shelter or building that is a dwelling or place for habitation by human beings. The term includes many kinds of dwellings ranging from rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes to high-rise apartment buildings. This book presents the rapid growth of urban areas in most of the developed countries and it compares the international perspectives on public housing by comparing policies used in various countries.
