The importance of moving toward a national policy to end homelessness is crucial. In this striking examination of the roles that homeless people and the U.S. government play in causing and curtailing the escalating phenomena of homelessness, Edna MolinaJackson asserts that there is a great need to alter the socioeconomic structures that generate extreme and entrenched forms of poverty that lead to homelessness.Homeless Not Hopeless explores the role social networks play in the daily survival of homeless Latino and African American men. Using a qualitative research design, author MolinaJackson observes how these men initiate, participate in, and maintain social networks and how these networks function. The findings support a more empowering view of homeless men as active, rational, and competent actors engaged in negotiating their social world. Members rely on social networks composed of a hierarchy of casual and intimate affiliations. The networks of Americanized Latinos and African Americans facilitate their integration into a subculture of street life, while those of recentimmigrant Latinos revolve around their struggles to find work, avoid deportation, and enlist the support of paisanos.

About the Author:

Edna Molina-Jackson is Assistant Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology at the California State University, Bakersfield.

Review:

Sociologist Molina-Jackson documents social networking through a qualitative study of 41 African American and Latino homeless men in Los Angeles. The author argues that in the tough terrain of the street, an exchange of information (e.g., about jobs, soup kitchens, shelters) is crucial for survival. Useful for academic library collections on social networking research and as a companion to ethnographic works on homelessness. Recommended. (I. Glasser CHOICE, July 2009)
