About this product
- DescriptionEven in an age of ecomic prosperity, there are young people who live on the edge of western societies and who are held accountable for their every indiscretion, sometimes even for those of others. This book employs a sociological imagination to make connections between the public issues and private troubles of youth living on the street. The narrative is pedagogical in intent, seeking to make sense of seemingly antisocial behavior, understood in the context of broader social, political, and ecomic concerns. In particular, it speaks to the helping professions of education, law, social work, nursing, psychology, and medicine.
