Summary

This text's logical organization - essential concepts, troubled institutions, inequality, deviance, and global problems - in a concise, paperback format, helps students gain a coherent understanding of social problems. There are strongly worded debates in each chapter on controversial topics that make the text more interesting and encourage critical thinking. "Personal Perspectives" boxes give first person accounts of experiences such as single motherhood and "Signs of Hope" boxes show progress and solutions to problems.
