Part of the Edinburgh Studies in Culture and Society book series (ESCS)


We are concerned in this book with one particular kind of property, and with those who, over the past century or so, have been able to accumulate control and dispose of it. Our research has focussed on the stock of rented housing in one city, and on those who have owned it and those who continued to own it. However, our interest in landlordism really grew out of a wider sociological concern with property as an institution of fundamental importance in a modern capitalist society.
