Summary: I would recommend this strongly to anyone who is interested in the history of housing, and to a lesser extent municipal politics, in Canada. - Richard Harris, Canadian Journal of Urban Research, December 1994 A text which is readable and urbane yet packed as tightly with information as people were in the 1940s Vancouver housing stock. - Rhodri Windwor Liscombe, BC Studies Wade's account is a valuable contribution to the largely unknown history of Vancouver's early social housing movement and -- in no small measure -- a valuable contribution to Canada's housing history. It is to be hoped that Wade will write a sequel. - Alan F.J. Artibase, Canadian Historical Review. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Houses for All is the story of the struggle for social housing in Vancouver between 1919 and 1950. It argues that, however temporary or limited their achievements, local activists pplayed a significant role in the introduction, implementation, or continuation of many early national housing programs. Ottawa's housing initiatives were not always unilateral actions in the development of the welfare state. The drive for social housing in Vancouver complemented the tradition of housing activism that already existed in the United Kingdom and, to a lesser degree, in the United States.
Book Description: Fascinating and informative, Houses for All analyzes the housing problem that developed in Vancouver in the first half of this century -- and repairs the curious rupture in the collective historical memory that has left Vancouverites of the 1990s unaware of previous housing crises and past activism and achievements.
