Appropriate for the Social Problems course.

This theoretically balanced text provides the latest research and a consistent structure to help students analyze critical social problems facing the United States. 

The author presents both sides of an argument with a neutral voice and use a "down-to-earth" writing style. By using Social Problems: A Down-To-Earth Approach 10e, not only do students gain a sociological understanding of social problems, but also they are able to explore—and evaluate—their own opinions about specific social problems. They will gain a greater awareness of the social forces that shape their orientations to social problems and their perspectives on social life. The ideas in this book, then, can penetrate students’ thinking and give shape to their views of the world.
