February 2021 | 288 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
SAGE Readings for Social Problems is a convenient and economical option for instructors who want to introduce students to scholarly literature in their social problems courses. It contains 16 short readings on topics covered in typical courses, including economic inequality, race, gender, crime, substance abuse, education, health/medicine, the environment, family, and the social construction of social problems. The articles in this collection were all chosen because they are accessible to undergraduate, avoid complicated statistical analysis, and demonstrate the range of methodological approaches to studying social problems.
