Review "So for once the blurb on the jacket matches the content of the book, for it is indeed 'the first major study of leaving home to be published in Britain.' As the author of what could be described as a minor study of a smaller sample of young people leaving home, I can only endorse this opinion and recommend the book to teachers and students of sociology at all levels." - Times Educational Supplement "...this volume gives a useful and more focused overview of the issues facing young adults as they move away fromtheir childhood bases." - Adoption and Fostering "Leaving Home is a challenging and provocative text, which will be of value to practitioners, managers and academics alike." - Child and Family Social Work "...extremely useful." - Housing Studies "...a welcome and significant contribution to the youth policy literature." -Social Policy "...an impressive work based on a combination of survey data and in-depth research. It will provide stimulating reading for a wide variety of people from policy-makers and practitioners to researchersand adds greatly to our understanding of the phenomenon of leaving home, including homelessness." - Urban Studies --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. pdf
