This sociological imagination is then put to use as readers move through the four main sections of the text to explore social problems affecting the family, the community, the United States, and finally, the whole planet.
Section I focuses on status and control in intimate, everyday relationships from the schoolroom to the bedroom. Section II deals with the experiences of “others,” those not like us who are still deserving of our attention and concern.
Section III introduces social problems that can only be solved through policy choices at the national level, while Section IV broadens this to include social problems that require the attention and commitment of a variety of international actors.
Written to enable readers to recognize all sides of controversial, emotionally charged issues, Social Problems is an excellent introduction to the study of sociology.
