Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Now in its seventh edition, The Study of Social Problems uses seven sociological perspectives--social pathology, social disorganization, value conflict, deviant behavior, labeling, the critical perspective, and social constructionism--to examine social problems. Focusing on theory, this critically acclaimed anthology distinguishes itself from other texts, which are organized topically. Each section opens with an overview of the perspective's major contributors, its history, and its main characteristics and closes with a critique of the perspective and questions for discussion. Thirty-six readings drawn from a wide range of primary sources illustrate and expand upon the key elements of each approach.

The seventh edition features updated textual material, readings, and annotated references. Ten new contemporary selections cover the pathology of everyday life; sexual education and value conflict; self-injury and differential association; the stigma of charity; attacks on labeling theory; capitalism and the problems of class, race, and gender; state-corporate crime; changing constructions of rape; immigration; and terrorism as a social problem.

Long a standard in its field, The Study of Social Problems, Seventh Edition, is an affordable, comprehensive, and indispensable volume for social problems courses.

Book Description: Oxford University Press, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The coverage of the theories is exceptional. I like the text because unlike its glossy high-cost competitors, it focuses on the essential things."--Annegret Staiger,Clarkson University "The theoretical coverage is outstanding! Very broad and presented in a way that students can understand and that allows for relatively easy comparing/contrasting. I would absolutely adopt a new edition because of the variety of perspective/theories presented and their organization and presentation."--Kelly A. Dagan,Illinois College "I view this book as an antidote to the mindless mediocrity of conventional (brick-sized) social problems texts. It is the best book on the subject and I will adopt the new edition, because it is the only option for thoughtful instruction."--Mahmoud Sadri,Texas Woman's University.

Book Description: Oxford University Press. PAPERBACK. Book Condition: New. 019973187X This anthology uses seven theoretical perspectives to examine social problems (unlike most social problems texts, which are organized topically around issues such as drug abuse, crime, etc.). Each section begins with an overview of the main contributors to the perspective, its history, and an outline of its major characteristics, and closes with a critique of the perspective and questions for discussion. This book is used in social problems courses, which is a lower-level course, but it takes a higher level approach due to its heavy focus on theory. The book's strengths include its theoretical approach to social problems and its clear illustrations of those theories. It is well-organized, comprehensive, and affordable and also includes primary sources and scholarly articles (or excerpts thereof). Bookseller Inventory # 6434897
