Social Problems: A Down-to-Earth Approach presents clear analysis of the major social problems we face today, at home and abroad, with an emphasis on how these issues are relevant to your life. Utilizing a consistent chapter structure and approaching problematic issues from various sides, author Jim Henslin encourages critical thinking as he seeks to instill a lasting sociological perspective that you can take out of the classroom and into your everyday life.
The 13th Edition offers thoroughly updated data as well as examples of contemporary social problems drawn from recent headlines in order to emphasize the relevance of the course to your daily life. Examples of fresh topics include how a universal basic income might work in the future and how online discussion groups for rare diseases have helped patients gain some control over their medical care.
