MAKING SENSE OF SOCIAL PROBLEMS (hb) 2015
Author: JOEL BEST
ISBN: 9788130923703
Year: 2015
Publisher: VIVA BOOKS PRIVATE LIMITED
Category: LAW / JUSTICE & LAW ENFORCEMENT
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 344
 ABOUT THE TITLE
Internet addiction. Cell-phone-distracted drivers. Teen suicide. Economic recession. The health risks of trans fats. The carefully selected collection of case studies in Making Sense of Social Problems is designed to help students understand and critically evaluate a wide range of contemporary social issues.

The cases are organized to highlight a series of key elements:
• why “objective” claims deserve critical attention
• how advocates bring attention to issues
• why expert interpretations may change over time
• the role of the media in shaping or distorting concerns
• the consequences of public policy

The introduction, conclusion, and section notes provide a coherent framework for the text. Reflecting the promise of the constructionist approach, the result is a powerful set of tools for systematically investigating social problems. It can be used to advantage as a “stand-alone,” as well as with such texts as Joel Best’s Social Problems.

About the Editors: Joel Best is professor of sociology and criminal justice at the University of Delaware.
Scott R. Harris is professor of sociology at Saint Louis University.
