Includes bibliographical references and index.

As homelessness continues to plague North America and also becomes more widespread in Europe, anthropologists turn their attention to solving the puzzle of why people in some of the most advanced technological societies in the world are found huddled in a subway tunnel, squatting in a vacant building, living in a shelter, or camping out in an abandoned field or on a beach. Anthropologists have a long tradition of working in poverty subcultures and have been able to contribute answers to some of the puzzles of homelessness through their ability to enter the culture of the homeless without some of the preconceptions of other disciplines.

The authors, anthropologists from the U.S.A. and Canada, offer us an analysis of homelessness that is grounded in anthropological research in North America and throughout the world. Both have in-depth experience through working in communities of the homeless and present us withthe results of their own work and with that of their colleagues.

A readable and first-rate summary of research on homelessness. I bought this second copy to give to my city councilman.

The problem of homelessness is a systemic one. It has not been adequately addressed by public officials or by social scientists. This excellent commentary by two anthropological experts on homelessness shows the complexity of the problem as revealed in on-the-scene fieldwork. Glasser and Bridgman show homelessness as it really is, and point to solid directions for its solution as a social problem.
