Charon and Vigilant (both affiliated with Minnesota State U. – Moorhead) edit this collection of readings. Essays are divided into 11 topical sections examining the meaning of social problems, various aspects of social inequality, and issues related to crime, drugs, family, education, health care, politics, violence, and terrorism, as well as social problems related to population, aging, and the environment. Each part is prefaced with a summary of articles, and each article is introduced by a list of topics covered and followed by discussion questions. This second edition includes 15 new articles, and updated reading questions.
