As 300 million Americans squeeze into our country, and as single-person households outnumber parents with children, it’s time to rethink our land use laws that favor the single-family house. This provocative book visits sites of recent controversies--from an immigration dispute in a Virginia suburb, to eminent domain in New York City, to illegal apartments in the backyards of California. Boudreaux explores how we could scrap the old housing bias in favor of affluent homeowners, and in its place harness the free market to provide for a greater variety of residences--apartments, townhouses, and mobile homes – for the twenty-first century.

Arguing that our laws are skewed to benefit entrenched homeowners, at the expense of newcomers and lower-income households,this bookadvocates both for libertarian ideals and for social justice - an unusual and revealing combination.
