Review:

This book makes an extremely valuable contribution to our existing knowledge in this area. It will become a key reference point for material on rural homelessness for some years to come. Professor Mark Goodwin, Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences, University of Wales

... a very well written and valuable study for housing and social policy academics, housing and rural policy makers, rural housing authorities and agencies, as well as all those involved with homelessness. Housing Studies"Rural social scientists will find much to like about this volume. It is interesting and well written. The authors' obvious passion for social justice also gives urgency to the problem and to finding viable solutions. The book can provide valuable supplemental reading for graduate courses in public policy, poverty, and rural social studies and rural sociology." Regional Studies

... this excellent book lifts the lid on the 'idyll' that is the countryside. Roof

This book needs to be an addition to the library of any scholar of rural poverty. Environment and Planning A"Rural homelessness: issues, experiences and policy responses is the culmination of many years of research and thought on the subject and its many facets. It is an exemplary example of how a geographical perspective adds both insights and possible policy direction to a subject such as homelessness in rural Britain. Well worth the read for those with an interest in problems of homelessness and/or rural society issues." Transactions
