Constructionist theory describes and analyzes social problems as emerging through the efforts of claimsmakers who bring issues to public attention. By typifying a problem and characterizing it as a particular sort, claimsmakers can shape policymaking and public response to the problem. Th is new edition of Images of Issues addresses claimsmaking in the 1990s, featuring such issues as fathers' rights, stalking, sexual abuse by the clergy, hate crimes, multicultural education, factory farming, and concluding with an expanded discussion of the theoretical debate over constructionism.

About the Author:

Joel E. Best is professor at the department of sociology and criminal justice, University of Delaware. He is the author of numerous books, including Flavor of the Month: Why Smart People Fall for Fads; Deviance: Career of a Concept; and Random Violence: How We Talk about New Crimes and New Victims.

Review:

“A collection of articles about a wide range of contemporary social problems all very much in current public discussion: spousal, elder, and child abuse; AIDS; dyslexia and other learning disabilities; concern about infertility; substance abuse; concern about rock lyrics; and the supposed threat of illegal immigration... The articles are all competent, well written, and adequately documented... [T]he authors cast light on an interesting collection of social problems, in a style that is constantly readable and frequently interesting. Readers at all levels.”

S. M. Soiffer, Choice
