Summary
"Manufactured Insecurity is the first book to document the sociolegal and geospatial forces that shape life in the mobile home park, as well as the catalytic moments of upheaval that occur when mobile home parks are redeveloped and entire communities are displaced. Drawing on rich ethnographic data gathered before, during, and after mobile home park closures in the two states with the largest mobile home populations, Manufactured Insecurity investigates how social, legal, and market forces intersect to create housing insecurity for an entire class of low-income residents"--Provided by publisher.
