Mean Streets : Youth Crime and Homelessness

Mean Streets : Youth Crime and Homelessness

Mean Streets is the first study of its kind, a careful examination of samples of homeless children, in situ - that is, on the streets of two Canadian cities, Toronto and Vancouver. Although “runaways” have been much publicized – even advertised – no previous study has systematically located children on the street and looked at their social worlds, comparing them with samples of in-home and in-school children, from the perspective of the children.
