SOCIAL PROBLEMS OF THE MODERN WORLD: A READER provides Sociology instructors with a variety of readings in all of the areas covered in a typical Social Problems course. The reader uses a global perspective, in order to help students understand that the social problems faced by people in the U.S. and around the world are increasingly shaped by our common fate in this interconnected world. At the same time, at least half of the articles in each chapter focus on the U.S., in order to engage students with issues that are immediate and relevant to their own personal lives and the communities in which they live.
