    Social Problems: Societal Crisis, Capitalism, and Democracy is an anthology that offers students a variety of readings on prominent social problems. The selections feature perspectives from those who have contributed to modern social problems, as well as those who have no power over shaping them. In doing so, the text demonstrates that social problems are two-fold, benefiting some while creating obstacles for others.

    The selected articles, rigorously analyzed, help identify social problems, social inequalities, institutionalized inequalities, social and physical exploitation, the neglected, and violence and terrorism, not only in the U.S., but worldwide. Students are exposed to important discussions on social movement theories, how financial inequality is negatively affecting the world, and how individuals can get involved to correct the world’s social problems.

    Social Problems introduces students to a variety of perspectives to provide them with a holistic understanding of pre- and postmodern societal challenges. The text is ideal for undergraduate courses in sociology and anthropology, as well as classes in cognate fields such as policy and political science.
