Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Social Problems, Seventh Edition!

Empower your students to become part of the solution.

The new Seventh Edition of Social Problems: Community, Policy, and Social Action goes beyond the typical presentation of contemporary social problems and their consequences by emphasizing the importance and effectiveness of community involvement to achieve real solutions. With a clear and upbeat tone, this thought-provoking text challenges readers to see the social and structural forces that determine our social problems; to consider various policies and programs that attempt to address these problems; and to recognize and learn how they can be part of the solution to social problems in their own community.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
