Social Problems : Community, Policy and Social Action - 05 edition

Social Problems : Community, Policy and Social Action (ISBN10: 0761987827; ISBN13: 9780761987826)
ISBN13: 978-0761987826
ISBN10: 0761987827

Summary: Terrorism. Poverty. Unemployment. AIDS. Crime. Drug abuse. Do any or all of these social problems exist in your community? What exactly is a social problem, and what policies and activities have been implemented to try and resolve them?

Anna Leon-Guerrero has written an accessible and insightful text which encourages students to play an active part in their own communities. By encouraging critical thinking and Internet research, students will come to recogn
ize that social problems don't just exist "somewhere else," but that they exist on their own campuses and in their own neighborhoods and communities.

Social Problems: Community, Policy, and Social Action offers a sociological perspective on the social problems discussed. It also provides an awareness that our personal experiences with problems that may arise in families, the workplace, health and medicine, the media, cities and suburbs, or with drug abuse, poverty, crime, the environment, and war and terrorism are often caused by structural or social forces. Unlike other texts, the book offers a balanced view through examining both the problems and attempts to resolve these pervasive social issues.
