In this unique new text, Corey Dolgon integrates an innovative case study approach into a comprehensive introduction that helps students understand how they can address social problems in their communities by applying basic theories and concepts. He stresses how a sociological imagination not only informs how students understand the root causes of social ills but also offers powerful tools for engaging in solutions.

Key Features:

* Engaging chapter-opening case studies

* Each chapter includes a detailed set of definitions and statistical portraits of problems

* Historical segments trace how particular problems have evolved

* The end-of-chapter feature "Voices from the Field" highlights a particular individual who is currently working to address the root causes of social problems.
