Recently, there has been an upsurge of interest in the issue of homelessness, sparked partly by a shocking upsurge in the incidence of the phenomenon itself and partly by a maturation in our collective thinking on the issue. The upsurge of interest, at any rate, is strong enough to suggest the utility of a bibliography on the subject. The bibliography is to be considered the major part of and the raison d'etre for this article, with the commentary that follows representing the author's personal reactions and observations on reading and thinking about many of the items in the bibliography.
