   schema:reviewBody ""Terrorism. Poverty. Unemployment. AIDS. Crime. Drug abuse. Do any or all of these social problems exist in your community? What exactly is a social problem, and what policies and activities have been implemented to resolve them?" "Anna Leon-Guerrero has written a text which encourages students to play an active part in their own communities. By encouraging critical thinking and Internet research, students will come to recognize that social problems don't just exist "somewhere else," but that they exist on their own campuses, in their own neighborhoods and communities." "Social Problems: Community, Policy, and Social Action offers a sociological perspective on the social problems discussed. It also provides an awareness that our personal experiences with social problems are often caused by structural or social forces. Unlike other texts, the book offers a balanced view by examining both the problems and the attempts to resolve them."--Jacket." ;
