about this item
European Social Problems is the first book to examine social problems in Europe from the perspective of the social sciences. Key issues around health, crime, poverty, immigration, ethnicity, gender and education are addressed. An examination of the role of the institutions of the E.U. in solving these problems is a key part of this analysis. These core issues run as a thread through Europe and are experienced by Europeans themselves as social problems. As such, this text facilitates students’ direct engagement with some of the problematic constituents in their own lives wherever they live in Europe. The text is written in a lively accessible style that sets out the social problems being looked at in an engaging and seductive way. The text is suitable for final year undergraduate courses throughout the social sciences as well as postgraduate study.
