With an engaging writing style that has made it a popular choice at both 2 and 4-year schools, the Second Edition of Anna Leon-Guerrero’s Social Problems textbook humanizes social problems and addresses their consequences while emphasizing community awareness and action. The text focuses on inequalities, examining how race and ethnicity, gender, social class, sexual orientation, and age determine our life chances. Each chapter includes a discussion of relevant social policies or programs and highlights how individuals or groups have made a difference in their communities. Although the book looks primarily at the United States, global perspectives are interwoven where appropriate. Pedagogical features and a companion study site provide a platform for discussion that encourages critical thinking about the problems presented.
How Can We Solve Our Social Problems? discusses how we can take specific, realistic steps to solve a number of the world’s social problems. Author James Crone maintains a sense of sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, describes what could be done to solve some of the most pervasive social problems in America today. The suggestions in this book help students realize that we can take action-we can take steps to solve our social problems.
