Discussion for Social Problems: Who Makes Them?
michael miller (Faculty)
This is a free online text that addresses the social construction of social problems. It does not give depth examination of given social problems, but rather provides a very thoughtful treatment of the transformation by which an issue becomes a "social problem." Focuses as well on the role of various parties involved in this process, including political and economic elites. Informative student activities included. Would serve as an excellent supplement for a social problems course.
Straight text devoid of hyperlinks / easily navigable.
