Welcome to the SAGE companion site for Investigating Social Problems, Third Edition!

General Editor A. Javier Treviño, working with a panel of experts, thoroughly examines all aspects of social problems, providing a contemporary and authoritative introduction to the field. Each chapter is written by a specialist on that particular topic. This unique, contributed format ensures that the research, examples, and theories described are the most current and relevant available. The text is framed around three major themes: intersectionality (the interplay of race, ethnicity, class, and gender), the global scope of many problems, and how researchers take an evidence-based approach to studying problems.

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


We gratefully acknowledge A. Javier Treviño for writing an excellent text. Special thanks are also due to E. Megan Glancy of NC State University for developing the resources on this site.
