Social Problems, fifth edition, continues to explore the dynamics and consequences of social problems such as poverty, crime, sexism, addiction, and war that impact Canada and the rest of the world. Writing in the accessible and engaging style of previous editions, authors Lorne Tepperman and Josh Curtis are joined by Rachel La Touche to carefully examine each problem through a variety of theoretical paradigms. By exploring the broader implications of each problem under discussion, the authors offer students a comprehensive understanding of the consequences of - and potential solutions to - social issues that impact both individuals and the population at large. Now updated to be a more concise, intersectional, and diverse exploration of social problems in Canada and globally, the fifth edition offers students and instructors more streamlined chapters (14 down from 16); a brand-new box program; new feminist, trans, and progressive theories; and an emphasis on colonialism and issues relating to Indigenous reconciliation, making it the most comprehensive overview of social problems in Canada today.
