An introductory sociology textbook that takes a social- constructionist approach to the material. While presenting material standard to numerous other social problems textbooks, the authors also attempt to explain the politics behind how and why some groups will define something as problem and the various reasons they give for the causes and solutions to problems. The material mainly focuses on the United States, but some discussion of global issues is included throughout. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
