This bibliography, compiled for the International Year of Shelter for the Homeless, includes Australian documents specifically indexed under the subject 'homelessness'. The documents, taken mainly from FAMILY Database, are each accompanied by an abstract or indicative statement about their contents. Also included are publications about conditions that contribute to homelessness and to populations in danger of falling into homelessness. Items cover the period 1974-1987. Interspersed within the bibliography are four feature articles from The Age newspaper published during the International Year of Shelter for the Homeless. Introductory chapters explore definitions and different perspectives of homelessness.
