Investigating Social Problems

Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Investigating Social Problems by A. Javier Trevino. SAGE edge offers a robust online environment you can access anytime, anywhere, and features an impressive array of free tools and resources to keep you on the cutting edge of your learning experience.

In this groundbreaking new text, general editor A. Javier Treviño, working closely with a panel of experts, thoroughly examines all angles of social problems, providing a contemporary and expert introduction to the field. Each chapter is written by an expert scholar on that particular topic. This unique, contributed format ensures that the research and examples provided are the most current and relevant in the field. Each chapter is carefully framed by a strict pedagogical structure that ensures a smooth flow between chapters and provides continuity for the reader. The text is framed around the three major themes of intersectionality, global thinking, and research. Common features that appear in every chapter offer an additional unifying element and further illuminate intricacies and perspectives of each topic for the reader.
