Summary
"Updated to address recent issues such as the national debate on health care reform, this Second Edition of How Can We Solve Our Social Problems? gives students a sense of hope by demonstrating specific, realistic steps we can take to solve some of the most pervasive social problems in the United States today. Author James A. Crone maintains a sense of sociological objectivity throughout and helps students realize that we can take steps to solve such key social problems as poverty, racial and ethnic inequality, unequal education, and environmental issues. The book's first two chapters define "social problem," provide a theoretical background, discuss the daunting barriers we face in attempting to solve social problems, and demonstrate how sociology can help" "How Can We Solve Our Social Problems? Second Edition, is an excellent supplemental text for courses such as Social Problems, Social Change, Social Policy, Urban Sociology, Public Policy, and Social Welfare in departments of sociology, social work, political science, international studies, and economics"--Jacket
