Description

Addressing one of the most pressing and publicized social issues of our times, Joel Blau focuses on the institutional response of major American cities to the problem of homelessness. Blau first examines the national causes of homelessness, and then turns to the experience of New York - the city with the gravest crisis and the most ambitious response to date - to illustrate the impediments to long-term solutions nationwide.show more
