This book presents for the first time an interdisciplinary view of property development and property developers. Fourteen contributor are brought together here from leading researchers and respected practitioners, including property analysts, economists, geographers, planners and sociologists. This rounded picture of property research explores:
* the development of quantitative and qualitative research methods
* theories ranging from mainstream economics to social constructivism
* the inter-relationships between the economic and the social, and between individuals and organisations and their environments
Development and Developers highlights the benefits of different research approaches and methods, demonstrating how a more inclusive, multidisciplinary view of property research will connect to wider debates in urban studies.
