'This book would be appropriate for an undergraduate social problems, inequality or introduction to sociology course as a supplemental text. I believe the discussion questions at the end of each chapter are especially useful. They could be used for whole class or small group discussion. I could envision using Crone's book in break out discussion groups for a large class. Many of the discussion questions would also be suitable as essay or short answer questions for examinations or writing assignments. Overall, Crone has produced a volume that will introduce students to the linkages between social problems and social theory and to thinking sociologically about social problems.' ùTEACHING SOCIOLOGYáHow Can We Solve Our Social Problems? discusses how we can take specific, realistic steps to solve a number of the worldÆs social problems.

The suggestions in this book help students realize that we can take actionùwe can take steps to solve our social problems. Key Features:áá Presents a theory of conflict and social change: The author introduces his own theory replete with theoretical propositions and causal model so readers can more readily see the process of a social problem and where it is along the path of being solved.

Examines eleven specific social problems in American society: The book examines such issues as poverty, racial and ethnic inequality, unequal education, environmental problems, and much more, and illustrates how solving one social problem can also help ameliorate another social problem. Encourages students to think sociologically: While each social problem described is tied back to a theoretical perspective, students are encouraged to gain an appreciation of how social conditions greatly affect what we think, what we believe, and how we act.
