8 must read books on US land use and housing policy

Read the full post at Shareable.

Team Shareable has focused our editorial energies over the last couple months on how land wasn’t shared well in the U.S. and could be shared better. Neal Gorenflo, Shareable’s executive director, spent months putting together a timeline of policies that helped create a separate and unequal America, the most extensive one we know of online. 

Along the way, Gorenflo collected a list of books that helped him piece together the timeline or just put U.S. land use and housing policy in a larger socio-economic context. We’re sharing this list in case you want to go further down this rabbit hole than our series (which is included in the list in ebook form). We came to believe that ambitions for sharing in cities can only go so far if past inequities aren’t confronted and taken into account when developing solutions.
