Since the 1970s, Liverpool, England has been home to innovative housing solutions grounded in democratic control and cooperative ownership. This book authored by Matthew Thompson explores this history, documenting the housing co-op movement from the ‘70s as well as more recent grassroots efforts around establishing community land trusts. Thompson discusses the connections between these efforts and explores the opportunities and challenges presented by collective housing alternatives.
