From the Publisher:

This updated version of the bestselling text probes the nature and causes of each major social problem and then explores social control and social action with respect to each particular problem. Each chapter reflects a micro to macro approach, pointing out the interrelationships among today's social problems and the possibility of approaching them from several perspectives.
