Summary
Though begging is intimately linked to issues of street homelessness, mental health, substance abuse and social exclusion, this book focuses on begging as a distinctive form of marginalised economic activity. It uniquely brings together contributions from academics, as well as taking into account the voices of beggars themselves and of passers-by
