Two new books appearing in the aftermath of the (ongoing) Grenfell tragedy attempt to take stock of the UK 'housing crisis':  Anna Minton's Big Capital and Josh Ryan-Collins, Toby Lloyd and Laure Macfarlane's, Rethinking the Economics of Land and Housing. Danny Hayward argues that, despite the insights into housing policy and struggles here, the new discourse of 'crisis' in both cases functions to prevent the drawing of socially necessary conclusions

For trying to do that we feel we were censored.” 

– Nadia Latif and Omar El-Khairy (artistic team Homegrown)
