This pioneering book is the first to explore the experiences of homeless people in Russia in the late Soviet period and during post-socialist transition. By using in-depth interviews, Svetlana Stephenson places the narratives within the framework of theoretical perspectives on social-spatial exclusion and advances the understanding of homelessness in Russia as an extreme case of social-territorial displacement.
