Building upon the foundations students gain in introductory sociology courses, Social Problems: A Canadian Perspective examines the social dynamics and consequences of Canadian and global social problems such as poverty, unemployment, crime, drug abuse, health, war, and terrorism. These problems are discussed and examined through theoretical paradigms such as structural functionalism, conflict and feminist theories, symbolic interactionism, and social constructionism.
