Life File: Homelessby Judy Bastyra
This is part of a series which explores a wide range of social issues and is designed not only to inform young people of the facts but also to encourage them to consider the arguments for and against some controversial topics and to make up their own minds. The books are built around a series of key questions which help to focus the attention on critical aspects of the topic, and the information is supplemented with glossaries and a section on where to go for help. Case studies are included, and each book has a detailed index.
This book looks at what it means to be without a home, both in the developed and developing worlds. It describes some of the practical day-to-day problems of those who either choose to or are forced to sleep rough or squat, and what help is available. The book also raises questions about individual and government responsibility, about the rights and wrongs of begging, and the legal rights of the homeless.
