1. This timely book traces the history of social housing in the Middle East and considers how culture, faith, and politics influence the housing solutions offered. Social housing has far reaching affects on areas such as security, health, and political stability in a community.

2. This collection provides a provocative consideration of urban living spaces which are overlooked at best and threatened at worst. This is a neglected field of research in a topic which has global impact.

3. It provides fresh insight into national security and community building through the surprising lens of architecture using 85 beautiful images, which illustrate how social housing engages with the communities.
