9780205698349: Solutions to Social Problems: Lessons From Other Societies

This reader examines how other advanced industrial societies have dealt with social problems with relative success and looks how these strategies may be applicable to the United States. For each social problem considered, several articles have been selected. These articles either describe the situation in a single country or in multiple countries, or expressly contrast the situation of a country or countries with the United States.

Review:

“While the book is decidedly designed for a college-level audience, it remains accessible to the novice or freshman.  Additionally, the articles are carefully chosen, so as not to bog the reader down with unnecessary minutiae, but rather offer clear and intelligible data and interpretation.”

Eric Strayer, Hartnell College                       

 

“I highly recommend Eitzen’s Solutions to Social Problems: Lessons from Other Societies for any course that studies U.S. social problems.  I have found it to be a real eye-opener for my students and a great way to introduce them to primary source material.”

Eric Strayer, Hartnell College

 

“The Eitzen text is a valuable component to the course [Stratification] Students always clamor for answer to troubling social problems and Eitzen’s text provides me an excellent set of readings to address the student’s desire to know ways others have dealt with problematic issues.”

Douglas F. George, UCA
