Show Synopsis

The most accurate and comprehensive picture of homelessness to date, this study offers a powerful explanation of its causes, proposes short-and long-term solutions, and documents the striking contrasts between the homeless of the 1950s and 1960s and the contemporary population, which is younger and contains more women, children, and blacks.
