Book Description

First published in 1996, this study investigates whether housed children hold negative stereotypical ideas about their homeless peers. The study will also try to determine whether these stereotypes are generated by the label "homeless," the characteristics of being homeless such as poverty, or whether these stereotypes are held in response to an underlying racial prejudice.
