From the Back Cover:

In the past two decades, homelessness has emerged as a major social issue in most developed nations of the world. However, most of the research has come from one nation, the US. This collection of original articles includes literature reviews, studies comparing homelessness across nations, papers that examine specific issues in relation to homelessness in particular nations, and policy oriented discussions; all by authors and/or based on data from outside of the US. The papers highlight both similarities and differences in the status of homelessness and research approaches used to understand this social problem in the US and other developed nations.

About the Author:

Paul A. Toro is Professor of Psychology at Wayne State University in Detroit. He was President of the Society for Community Research and Action (Division 27, Community Psychology, of the American Psychological Association) in 2003-04. He and his Research Group on Homelessness and Poverty have conducted a wide range of studies on homelessness over the past two decades, including studies on homeless adults, families, and youth. His studies have compared homeless to matched housed samples; assessed prevalence, media coverage, and public opinion; evaluated interventions; tested social psychological theories; collected data across nations; and followed large samples in longitudinal designs.
