By: Lisa R. Schiff (author)Paperback

1 - 2 weeks availability


Through extensive research on how information about the homeless is generated and interpreted, Lisa Schiff offers both hard evidence and a convincing argument for questioning 'how service providers create forms and clients complete them, how advocates administer surveys and public agencies compile counts.' At the same time, she explores the day-to-day implications of her findings by demonstrating how competing understandings affect prevailing ideologies, which in turn affect our attempts at social change.
