Researching, Analyzing, and Understanding U.S. Social Issues
Introduction to Social Problems explores the many social issues that continue to plague the United States. Discussing and analyzing the extent and nature of various problems and their potential solutions, the book stands as a guidepost for people with an interest in “helping” professions — sociologists, educators, social workers, etc.
Through a sociological lens, students are able to gauge recurrent social issues and examine the benefits and possibilities of solutions. The Tenth Edition teaches students to apply research and knowledge to solve some of our nation’s most crippling problems.
