An examination of the professional, political, and popular literature on the nature and extent of homelessness from 1890 to 1925 affords a comparison of the economic and social characteristics of the homeless population at the turn of the century with that of today. The discussion covers the ensuing debates over the causes of homelessness, the various subgroups among the homeless during both periods, and the relative rates of homelessness, the context of extreme poverty and dislocation, and the prevalence of individual disabilities.

Past and Present is a book by Thomas Carlyle. It was published in April 1843 in England and the following month in the United States. It combines medieval history with criticism of 19th-century British society. Carlyle wrote it in seven weeks as a respite from the harassing labor of writing Cromwell. He was inspired by the recently published Chronicles of the Abbey of Saint Edmund's Bury, which had been written by Jocelin of Brakelond at the close of the 12th century.
I am glad to write a foreword to this book on Sandplay by my friend, Harriet Friedman, and her colleague, Rie Rogers Mitchell. It pays close attention to a subject whose importance cannot be overlooked because of its universality not only in a geographical sense but also historically. In her book Themis, Jane Harrison writes, A child’s toys in antiquity were apt to be much more than mere playthings.
