Summary
"Written for the general public as well as for specialists, this volume details some of the numerous dimensions of the homelessness issue: the rise in poverty; the decline of low-income housing: problems in counting the homeless; the role of familial estrangement; mental illness; substance abuse; and health status and behaviors. The authors conclude with discussions of rural versus urban homelessness, street children in Latin America, and homelessness in postindustrial societies."--Jacket
