Teens of the Night. The Young Night Drifters in Hong Kong.
Lee, Francis Wing-Lin
Youth & Society, v31 n3 p363-84 Mar 2000
Investigated the problem of teen night drifters in Hong Kong, examining teens' social background, subculture, reasons for drifting, services needed, and problems faced. Results from interviews indicated that most drifters were different from homeless or runaway youth. Although they still lived with their families, they were alienated or detached from them. They had a unique subculture and unique service needs. (SM)
