Editorial Reviews

Review

“This impressive collection of essays on vagrancy, homelessness, and poverty has truly global historical dimensions. It covers seven centuries and five continents, has a superb introductory overview, and is comparative social history at its best. It deserves to have a wide readership.”
— Robert Tignor, author of Worlds Together, Worlds Apart


“This book will serve as an index of the multivalent nature of current work in social history, literature, and postcolonial studies in vagrancy and homelessness. At the very least, the book provides an indispensible classroom textbook on poverty and vagrancy from a historical perspective.”
