Understanding Social Problems: Sparking the Sociological Imagination Through a Theme-Based Approach

Extensively updated and revised, and now emphasizing signature concepts that reflect the perspective of new author Karen Seccombe, this Fifteenth Edition of Social Problems maintains its focus on one overarching goal—to spark a sociological imagination. The text’s pedagogical devices help readers to more clearly see how many individual issues and personal problems are rooted in the social arrangements of society. Four major themes guide this edition of the text: an empirical methodology; linking individual experience with social structure; recognizing that social inequality contributes to social problems; and a comparative approach.


With features that emphasize first-person accounts, recent problems in the public spotlight, critical discussion of partisan debates, and a global view of social problems, this Fifteenth Edition of the text explores social problems that are relevant and engaging to readers—from same-sex marriage to police use of force to climate change.

MySocLab for the Social Problems course extends learning online to engage students and improve results. Media resources with assignments bring concepts to life, and offer students opportunities to practice applying what they’ve learned. Please note: this version of MySocLab does not include an eText.


Social Problems, Fifteenth Edition is also available via REVEL , an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
