about

Frame social problems, and identify solutions, through the lens of politics
Revel™ Social Problems focuses on how people construct problems, and how they develop potential solutions, based on their political attitudes. Analyzing issues from liberal, radical-left, conservative, and libertarian points of view, author John Macionis encourages students to develop their own positions, and helps them attain the knowledge they need to engage in solving social problems through activism and political discussion. The Seventh Edition offers coverage of a range of hot-button contemporary social problems — from #BlackLivesMatter to increasing income inequality — to help students see the relevance of this field of study to their own lives.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
 
NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
