Oxford University Press, 2007 - Social Science - 572 pages
This is a core text for courses in social problems. Using a strong Canadian perspective, it examines the social dynamics and consequences of social problems (such as unemployment, poverty, global inequality) through the lens of the main sociological paradigms. It takes a broad approach and examines the social construction of social problems and the impact of social problems on individual and societal health. Possible solutions for individuals and society at large are examined.
