              Philosophy is not usually seen as a guidance for modern housing policy but in this new book, Dr Helen Taylor argues that there is something innovative, unusual, and worth discussing about the application of philosophy to housing. The philosophical framework used within this book ...is John Rawls' conception of justice as fairness. The UK has gone through several shifts in housing policy over the past decade, most recently by introducing the controversial `Bedroom Tax', in an effort to make more cuts to benefits and social welfare. Social Justice in Contemporary Housing: Applying Rawls' Difference Principle suggests that by using ideas of agency we can understand the impact that social policy has on individuals, and wider society. The work outlines the liberal principle of legitimacy and argues that Rawls' concept of reasonableness can, and should, be used to justify the intervention of policy in individuals' lives. This book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students of housing as well as philosophy and social policy, as well as those working around the creation and implementation of social housing in the UK.
