Introduction

The literature on rent control is fragmentary, its data local. Although there has been a proliferation of local studies, no synthesis has emerged. The needs of professionals, scholars, and citizens with interest in the subject thus have not been fully met.

It is a time of important transition in the housing market and great uncertainty in the politics of housing. It is time to define the major issues related to rent control, provide guidelines to inform policy, and establish a foundation for more extensive and systematic study.

Chapter 2 broadens the framework, outlines the relevant features of the fast-changing national housing system, and directly links rent control with the services that the rental sector will be called upon to render in the years just ahead.

Chapters 3 and 4 form a pair. Together, they describe the rent control reality in considerable and balanced detail. The former provides an overview of the New York City law as it has evolved since World War II and probes the effects of that law through time. The latter analyzes rent control in California.

Chapters 5 and 6 constitute another pair; they bring a method
