Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A color-illustrated textbook that opens with an overview of the sociological tools and perspectives that are used in the study of social problems. It then disusses fundamental changes and problems in four basic social institutions--the economy, government, education, and family--before examining more specific topics, such as health care and poverty. This updated edition adds two new features: "Signs of Hope" boxes and "Personal Perspectives" boxes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
