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

The extensively updated Fourth Edition of Investigating Social Problems, edited by A. Javier Trevino, promises a specialized study into societal troubles such as poverty, racism, crime, drug addiction, and environmental disasters. Not just a single author's perspective, but more than two dozen experts deliver informed discussions on their area of specialization, making this text unique in its breadth and depth. With a ministry towards understanding, grappling with, and crafting solutions to these problems, the book moves beyond fundamental sociological concepts, offering students theory-loaded, empirically-rich explorations into pressing issues of the contemporary world.
