This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to argue that transformations are a valid activity in housing supply and should be supported as part of a country's housing policy. It then describes the structure of the book; the presentation of the data; space syntax diagrams; sampling and sub-samples; and government-built housing in developing countries. The chapter also discusses government-built housing in Mirpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh; Medinet Nasr, Cairo and Workers' City, Helwan, Greater Cairo, Egypt; Asawasi and Suntreso, Kumasi, Ghana; and Mbare and Highfield, Harare, Zimbabwe.
