Examples of socialized housing?

Any good resources or accounts of past housing struggles or attempts st socialization of housing? I’m not coming up with much when I search here.

The later sections of The Housing Monster might have some relevant stuff? Also, like: Sisterhood and Squatting in the 1970s: Feminism, Housing and Urban Change in Hackney, The squatters of 1946, Cotters and squatters: housing's hidden history, The hidden history of housing, The 1946 Squatters, A Short History of Abahlali baseMjondolo, the Durban Shack Dwellers’ Movement might be useful... or like anything by Architects for Social Housing or Southwark Notes maybe, depending on what you're looking for?

Couple of good films, although '60s '70s stuff:

Behind the Rent Strike, about a Liverpool rent strike in the late '70s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0anu9hlQ9iA

And Not a Penny on the Rents, about a London-wide rent strike in the late '60s: https://vimeo.com/17521362

That has a ton of resources. Don't know why I didn't think of it earlier. Thanks for all the more historical suggestions everyone.
