This introductory chapter to the edited volume "Evidence and Innovation in Housing Law and Policy" emphasizes housing's dual role as a vehicle for building community and as a vehicle for building wealth. The volume examines the impact of housing law and policy on households, neighborhoods, urban landscapes, and financial markets. We briefly introduce each of the thirteen contributions to this interdisciplinary volume, which address topics ranging from the recent financial crisis to discrimination and gentrification. We also include an open access table of contents.
