A Compendium of International Real Estate and Construction Issues $209.00
Editors: Raymond Abdulai (Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK)
Book Description:
In the global economy, real estate and construction issues are constantly changing and the dynamic nature of these issues accelerates the rate at which the changes take place. This process has far-reaching implications for stakeholders (practitioners, academics and policy makers) in the real estate and construction sectors. There is thus the need for cutting edge research that would continuously identify, monitor, and evaluate the dynamics of these changes in order to assist stakeholders to improve upon practice, policy formulation, teaching and learning. Real estate and construction issues are interconnected. However, they are often treated as if they are not. To remedy this misrepresentation, there is the need for research that engages with these issues to be conducted in an integrated manner. This book, which is the first of a series on these issues, is in response to that need. This book integrates research in these interrelated disciplines from an international perspective.
