Overview

Examine social problems via a coherent sociological framework
Revel™ Social Problems examines social structure and the underlying features of the social world in order to provide students a coherent framework for understanding social problems. Employing a consistently sociological approach, authors D. Stanley Eitzen, Maxine Baca Zinn, and Kelly Eitzen Smith show readers how social problems are interrelated and highlight society’s role in their creation and perpetuation. The Fourteenth Edition has been updated with coverage of major events of the last several years in order to help students achieve a balanced understanding of contemporary social problems.
