|Author: Robert Heiner|
From the Publisher:
Social Problems: An Introduction to Critical Constructionism synthesizes conflict theory and social constructionism to help students think critically about social problems. A concise, student-friendly alternative to all-encompassing standard textbooks, this book examines a single theoretical paradigm in depth, demonstrating how theory can be used to understand a breadth of real world structures.
Now thoroughly updated and revised, this fourth edition offers more thorough coverage of race and gender and inequality in education and health care. It also includes new sections on same-sex marriages and the medicalization of deviance.
