About Investigating Social Problems, Third Edition


For the Third Edition of Investigating Social Problems, editor A. Javier Treviño, has gathered a panel of top experts to thoroughly examine all aspects of social problems, providing students with a contemporary and authoritative introduction to the field. Each chapter is written by a well-known specialist on the topic being covered. This unique, contributed format ensures that the research and examples described are the most current and relevant available. In addition, the experts use both general theoretical approaches (structural functionalism, conflict theory, symbolic interactionism) as well as specialized theories chosen to bring additional insight and analysis to their assigned topics. The text is framed around three major themes: intersectionality (the interplay of race, ethnicity, class, and gender), the global scope of many problems, and how researchers take an evidence-based approach to studying problems.

  • Each chapter considers the social problem in question from the point of view of three general theoretical approaches (structural functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interactionism), and also discusses a few specialized theories that provide deeper understanding of the problem in question.
  • “Experiencing” features help to reveal concepts of intersectionality, exploring the interplay of race/ethnicity, class, and gender, and how their various combinations compound social inequalities among certain populations.
  • “Beyond our Border” features encourage the reader to consider the global scope of the social problem in question and examine how the interconnectedness, or transnational character, of these problems impact people (often quite differently) around the world.
