TRENDS AND ISSUES IN HOUSING IN ASIA: Book Review

The recently launched publication attempting to address housing situation in Asia,  derives its momentum from current theoretical inquiries into Asian Urbanism at large. The earlier literature were skewed towards the model of modernism and progressive, imagining the notion of future, and often Utopian in western generic sense. The publication is deviating and focusing on Asian models in addressing housing (at large) issues in major Asian cities. Though the focus of literature is housing but in turn its an attempt to build the larger urban discourse in validating Asian Urbanism (conceptual and incidental) and comparative model,  deriving its momentum from economic restructuring policies and imagine quality of life. 

This book is an important reference for audience who are concern about urbanism models of Asian cities and especially urban researcher/ scholars and students  who are attempting to carry out the academic research related to housing, urbanism and nature of imperatives that play significant role in shaping our cities in Asian context.
