Written from a distinctly Canadian point of view, Understanding Social Problems, Third Canadian Edition, examines how the structure and culture of societies contribute to social problems and their consequences. This text has strong pedagogical features and is comprehensive in its coverage, progressing from micro to macro levels of analysis. It focuses first on problems of health care, drug use, and crime, and then broadens to the widening concerns of population, health and welfare, science and technology, large-scale inequality and environmental problems. Known for its inclusive approach, Understanding Social Problems, Third Canadian Edition, explores powerful stories of real life people struggling with the challenges society and its problems have thrust upon them.
