Summary

Solutions to Social Problems from the Bottom Up: Successful Social Movements D. Stanley Eitzen Kenneth Stewart ISBN: 0-205-46884-5 Composed of 25 readings, this brief reader focuses on how solutions to social problems have emerged from people who have joined together.

The text is divided into six chapters: Chapter 1 incorporates articles on the importance of social movements. Chapter 2 looks at social movements that have promoted race, class, and gender equality. Chapter 3 examines those movements that enhanced democracy and equal access to power. Chapter 4 focuses on movements that pressed for corporate social responsibility. Chapter 5 describes a new generation of social movements seeking to advance social justice in todayrsquo;s globalized world. Chapter 6 discusses the importance of citizen activism for the benefit of the common good.
