Social problems such as unemployment, poverty and drug addiction are a fact of life in industrialised societies. This book examines the sociology of social problems from interesting and challenging perspectives. It analyses how social problems emerge and are defined as such, who takes responsibility for them, who is threatened by them and how they are managed, solved or ignored. The authors examine and critique existing theories of social problems before developing their own theoretical framework. Their 'theory of residualist conversion of social problems' explains how certain social problems threaten legitimate power structures, so that problems of a social or political nature are transformed into personal problems, and the 'helping professions' are left to intervene. This book will become a key reference on class, inequality and social intervention and an important text for students in sociology and social work courses.

'This book would be appropriate for an undergraduate social problems, inequality or introduction to sociology course as a supplemental text. I believe the discussion questions at the end of each chapter are especially useful. They could be used for whole class or small group discussion. I could envision using Crone's book in break out discussion groups for a large class. Many of the discussion questions would also be suitable as essay or short answer questions for examinations or writing assignments. Overall, Crone has produced a volume that will introduce students to the linkages between social problems and social theory and to thinking sociologically about social problems.' ùTEACHING SOCIOLOGYáHow Can We Solve Our Social Problems? discusses how we can take specific, realistic steps to solve a number of the worldÆs social problems. Author James Crone maintains a sense of sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, describes what could be done to solve some of the most pervasive social problems in America today. The suggestions in this book help students realize that we can take actionùwe can take steps to solve our social problems. Key Features:áá Presents a theory of conflict and social change: The author introduces his own theory replete with theoretical propositions and causal model so readers can more readily see the process of a social problem and where it is along the path of being solved. Gives students studying social problems a sense of hope: Realistic suggestions help readers realize that a number of tangible steps can be taken to solve or at least ameliorate our social problems. Examines eleven specific social problems in American society: The book examines such issues as poverty, racial and ethnic inequality, unequal education, environmental problems, and much more, and illustrates how solving one social problem can also help ameliorate another social problem. Encourages students to think sociologically: While each social problem described is tied back to a theoretical perspective, students are encouraged to gain an appreciation of how social conditions greatly affect what we think, what we believe, and how we act. Intended Audience:áá This is an excellent supplemental text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses such as Social Problems, Social Change, Social Policy, Urban Sociology, Public Policy, and Social Welfare in the departments of Sociology, Social Work, Political Science, International Studies, and Economics.Using this book with core SOCIAL PROBLEMS textbooks:Click 'Sample Materials and Chapters' at left for a matrix that shows you how to effectively use this text in conjunction with your current core textbook!Contact the author at [email protected] or at 812.866.7363 for any questions or feedback.
