'The written in a characteristically accessible style and the presentation of the information is clear and eye-catching.' - Roof;'a useful summary of young single homelessness in Britain and elsewhere.' - Journal of Social Policy;'Youth homelessness is one of the most disturbing issues of the 1990s and Hutson and Liddiard's book makes a particularly interesting and distinctive contribution to its essential and stimulating book.' - Urban Studies;Drawing on a broad range of international studies, this book looks in detail at how youth homelessness is variously defined, measured and explained, as well as discussing the solutions which are usually proposed for it. Yet this book is more than simply a description of youth homelessness. It uses original material to show how youth homelessness, like other issues, can be differently presented by agencies, the media, academics, politicians and by those directly affected - in this case, young homeless people themselves.
