Description

A straightforward approach that helps students see the relevance of social problems to their lives
Revel™ Social Problems: A Down-to-Earth Approach presents clear analysis of the major social problems we face today, at home and abroad, with an emphasis on how these issues are relevant to students’ lives. Utilizing a consistent chapter structure and approaching problematic issues from various sides, author Jim Henslin encourages critical thinking as he seeks to instill in students a lasting sociological perspective – one they will take out of the classroom and into their everyday lives. The Twelfth Edition offers fully up-to-date data and examples to foster understanding of the contemporary state of the discipline.

Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience – for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
