This book represents a truly innovative and empowering approach to social problems. Instead of focusing solely on a seemingly tireless list of major problems, Sara Towe Horsfall considers how select key issues can be solved and pays particular attention to the advocate groups already on the front lines. Horsfall first provides a robust theoretical foundation to the study of social problems before moving on to the problems themselves, examining each through the lens of specific advocate groups working towards solutions. This concise and accessible text also incorporates useful learning tools including study questions to help reinforce reading comprehension, questions for further thought to encourage critical thinking and classroom discussion, a glossary of key terms, and a worksheet for researching advocate groups. Social Problems: An Advocate Group Approach is an essential resource for social problems courses and for anyone who is inspired to effect change.

Review:

Praise for Social Problems by Sara Towe Horsfall

Horsfall shows that the social sciences not only can describe problems but also identify solutions. This text will really connect with today's pragmatic, hands-on, community-service oriented generation of students.”
Robert Szafran, Stephen F. Austin State University

This book is packed with up-to-date information about relevant topics that are sure to lead to productive class discussion. The advocate group approach is refreshing, and students will appreciate its practical and down-to-earth aspects.”
Sharon Hardesty, Eastern Kentucky University
