Understanding Social Problems: Sparking the Sociological Imagination Through a Theme-Based Approach

Extensively updated and revised, and now emphasizing signature concepts that reflect the perspective of new author Karen Seccombe, thisFifteenth Edition of Social Problemsmaintains its focus on one overarching goal—to spark a sociological imagination. The text’s pedagogical devices help readers to more clearly see how many individual issues and personal problems are rooted in the social arrangements of society. Four major themes guide this edition of the text: an empirical methodology; linking individual experience with social structure; recognizing that social inequality contributes to social problems; and a comparative approach.


With features that emphasize first-person accounts, recent problems in the public spotlight, critical discussion of partisan debates, and a global view of social problems, thisFifteenth Edition of the text explores social problems that are relevant and engaging to readers—from same-sex marriage to police use of force to climate change.
