Many of today’s social problems—poverty, crime, racism, sexism, drug abuse, unequal access to quality health care or education, threats to the environment, over-population—can seem intractable. James A. Crone’s How Can We Solve Our Social Problems?, Third Edition is designed to give students studying these types of social problems a sense of hope. Unlike the standard survey texts that focus heavily on the causes and consequences of problems, this book is devoted to analyzing possible solutions. It maintains a sense of sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, describes what could be done in America and on a global scale, through government policies, private sector initiatives, and the collective actions of citizens, to address even our most pervasive social problems.

Understanding Social Problems, Policies, and Programs offers a comprehensive analysis of the policies used in the United States to develop the nation's social welfare programs. In this third edition, Leon Ginsberg updates social welfare policy through the 1990s. He explains developments that have taken place during the Clinton administration, in particular the sweeping changes effected by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, and details the major provisions of the new law and how it differs from laws previously in effect. He deals with the effect on social welfare of diverse social issues and events ranging from the trial of O. J. Simpson and the Oklahoma City bombing to the Contract with America. Ginsberg has also expanded on the six-component model -- history, social problems, public policy, description of programs, policy analysis, and policy practice -- that defines social welfare policy and services.

Soziologie sozialer Probleme und sozialer Kontrolle

Soziale Probleme werden als öffentliche und politische Themen problematisiert; die in diesen Prozessen etablierten Repräsentationen bilden die Grundlage für Prozesse der Institutionalisierung neuer Realitäten, die z. B. die Form politischer Maßnahmen annehmen können und über deren Funktionen und Effekte sie sich reproduzieren und verändern. So schien es vielen Beobachtern und Beobachterinnen in den letzten dreißig Jahren, dass das Konzept ‚Soziale Probleme’ soziologisch nur Sinn machen könne, wenn man es mit einem strikt konstruktivistischen Theorieprogramm und dessen Fragen nach der Prozessen und Bedingungen der öffentlichen Problemati-sierung sozialer Probleme identifizieren würde. Dieses Forschungsprogramm hat sich in den letzten Jahren zu einem fruchtbaren Feld theoretischer und empirischer Forschung entwickelt. Gesellschaftliche Konstruktion bedeutet allerdings nicht Beliebigkeit und Diskurse der Problematisierung sind genauso real wie ihre gesellschaftlichen, politischen und individuellen Konsequenzen. Mit ihnen befasst sich eine andere Soziologie sozialer Probleme, die sich der Analyse einzelner sozialer Probleme und der auf sie bezogenen Formen der Politik, Intervention und sozialer Kontrolle widmet. Es ist genau diese doppelte Fragestellung, die die Soziologie sozialer Probleme und sozialer Kontrolle auszeichnet. Der vorliegende Band bietet einen profunden Überblick über den aktuellen Diskussionsstand in diesem wichti-gen Forschungsfeld und reflektiert damit die Lebendigkeit und Fruchtbarkeit der Soziologie sozialer Probleme und sozialer Kontrolle.
