For courses in Social Problems
Frame social problems, and identify solutions, through the lens of politics
Revel® Social Problems focuses on how people construct problems, and how they develop potential solutions, based on their political attitudes. Analyzing issues from liberal, radical-left, conservative, and libertarian points of view, author John Macionis encourages students to develop their own positions and helps them attain the knowledge they need to engage in solving social problems through activism and political discussion. Available for Fall 2021 classes, the Digital Update includes coverage of key recent events such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as expanded global and national maps that enable students to compare and analyze data.
Revel empowers students to actively participate in learning. More than a digital textbook, Revel delivers an engaging blend of author content, media, and assessment. With Revel, students read and practice in one continuous experience, anytime, anywhere, on any device.
