Social Problems helps you to understand that many of our problems are rooted in the social arrangements of society, and thus require social solutions. Authors Karen Seccombe and William Kornblum bring pressing social problems to life through both personal vignettes and empirical data. By highlighting today's resonant issues, the authors hope to inspire you to take up your own causes as a social activist.
The 16th Edition emphasizes the relevance of course material to your life by highlighting topics pulled from recent headlines. The authors present new material on the cultural and demographic factors affecting health and health care, such as obesity and an aging population. A new section explains the effects of alcohol on families, including codependency and enabling behaviors.
