The Study of Social Problems: Seven Perspectives (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 3 feb 2011
|Nuevo desde||Usado desde|
Descripción del producto
The coverage of the theories is exceptional. I like the text because unlike its glossy high-cost competitors, it focuses on the essential things. (Annegret Staiger, Clarkson University)
The theoretical coverage is outstanding! Very broad and presented in a way that students can understand and that allows for relatively easy comparing/contrasting. I would absolutely adopt a new edition because of the variety of perspective/theories presented and their organization and presentation. (Kelly A. Dagan, Illinois College)
I view this book as an antidote to the mindless mediocrity of conventional (brick-sized) social problems texts. It is the best book on the subject and I will adopt the new edition, because it is the only option for thoughtful instruction. (Mahmoud Sadri, Texas Woman's University)
Reseña del editor
Now in its seventh edition, The Study of Social Problems uses seven sociological perspectives―social pathology, social disorganization, value conflict, deviant behavior, labeling, the critical perspective, and social constructionism―to examine social problems. Focusing on theory, this critically acclaimed anthology distinguishes itself from other texts, which are organized topically. Each section opens with an overview of the perspective's major contributors, its history, and its main characteristics and closes with a critique of the perspective and questions for discussion. Thirty-six readings drawn from a wide range of primary sources illustrate and expand upon the key elements of each approach.
The seventh edition features updated textual material, readings, and annotated references. Ten new contemporary selections cover the pathology of everyday life; sexual education and value conflict; self-injury and differential association; the stigma of charity; attacks on labeling theory; capitalism and the problems of class, race, and gender; state-corporate crime; changing constructions of rape; immigration; and terrorism as a social problem.
Long a standard in its field, The Study of Social Problems, Seventh Edition, is an affordable, comprehensive, and indispensable volume for social problems courses.
