For courses in Social Problems that use all three perspectives.This classic text uses current social problems to teach basic sociological principles as well as concepts specific to the different social topics. Well-balanced in approach, it uses three major sociological perspectives to analyze a wide variety of contemporary American social problems and research data - explaining the origin and existence of each social problem and indicating courses of action for changing social conditions and the personal sacrifices necessary to implement social change .
