Beschreibung

In this major new textbook, Vic George and Robert Page provide an original and much-needed introduction to global social problems and global social policy.In an increasingly globalized world, it is inevitable that many of the social problems which have so far been seen as national in character will assume a global character. Global social problems are those which cannot be confined within national boundaries and which need both national and international attention if they are to be ameliorated. Pollution of the atmosphere is a stark example of this process. Global Social Problems begins with a discussion of the contested concept of globalization and goes on to explore eight of the most important global social problems: Environmental Degradation, International Poverty, Crime, AIDS, Drugs, Family Violence, Racism and Migration; ending with an assessment of current global social policies.This book will be essential reading for undergraduate students in the social sciences, particularly those studying social policy, sociology and politics.

Pressestimmen

"This collection not only manages to summarize a wide variety of different debates but challenges us to engage with them even further. Both students and teachers will find it a useful guide to one of the most important subjects in the social sciences today." ----Tony Fitzpatrick, University of Nottingham "By addressing the topic of global social policy through the lens of global social problems, Vic George and Robert Page have added a useful volume to the international social policy literature. The authors have made a welcomed departure from the standard literature in the field by moving beyond the frameworks of mythological nationalism and comparative studies towards a much needed transnational social policy analysis." ----Bob Decon, University of Sheffield
