    Book review: Housing wealth and welfare, By Caroline Dewilde and Richard Ronald, Cheltenham, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2017, ISBN 978 78536 095 4.

    This is a very interesting edited volume comprising an introduction chapter reflecting on so-called housing asset-based welfare and nine chapters written by a nice selection of authors. It is a more than worthwhile joint effort of two excellent ERC laurates who have both been working on the topic for years which is demonstrated in the very comprehensive overview of the state of the art in housing wealth and welfare. They explain different models across time and across Europe: some models are more familialised, relying on family capital, while others are more financialised, relying on mortgages. The introduction is followed by a multi-angle, multi-country collection of well-written chapters. And last but not least, there is an epilogue by John Doling, ‘the father’ of housing asset-based welfare.
