Reviews

-Useful volume of up-to-date information.- --Langley C. Keyes, APA Journal -Housing the Homeless is the first major collection of key research and programmatic articles to appear on the topic . . . [It] clearly stands as a central reference for those involved in homelessness research or policy-making, and is of fundamental importance to anyone wishing to initiate such endeavors. It should also be useful in both graduate and undergraduate human geography and urban planning curricular, particularly for social geography and human-services planning courses.- --Jennifer R. Wolch, Professional Geographer -In spite of its title, this volume is really a portrait of what we have not done to house the homeless. It does contain, however, enough material to fashion a liberal remedy. We must first recognize the heterogeneity of the homeless population. While the stereotypical white-male alcoholic is a reality, so too is the unemployed man or woman who is unable to find affordable housing in our -revitalized- downtowns. The homeless are a cross-section of our underclass, and as such cannot be separated from poverty in general. To do so means we will continue to develop policies which treat symptoms (providing shelters), rather than causes (providing full employment).- --John Paul Jones III, Growth and Change -[T]he impressive array of research found within . . . amply illustrates, as advocates already know, that what prevents solutions from being adopted nationally is not a lack of knowledge, but a lack of the political will to make what would be wrenching structural changes concerning housing and social services in this nation.- --Rob Rosenthal, Contemporary Sociology "Useful volume of up-to-date information." --Langley C.
