Synopses & Reviews
Taking a conflict approach, Eitzen and Baca Zinn focus on the underlying features of the social world in an effort to help students to understand today's social problems.
A note from the authors:
Our overarching goal in "Social Problems, 10th edition, is to capture the imagination of our readers. We want them not only to be interested in the topics, but also to become enthusiastic about exploring the intricacies and mysteries of social life. We want them, moreover, to incorporate the sociological perspective (imagination) into their explanatory repertoire.
We hope that you enjoy the new edition.
