Social Policy and Social Problems

 

This authoritative and accessible text provides a contemporary introduction to social problems with a close look at social policies.

 

Respected scholars William Kornblum and Joseph Julian introduce the major trends and future outlook for each social problem by looking at them from a global perspective and “big picture” view. Social policies devised to address social problems--and their consequences--are examined in depth by presenting the key research conducted to examine, explain and alleviate today's social problems.
