There are some interesting points, but the book comes off as being a little too libral and making points and showing the facts that it wants. There were facts left out that intelligent readers should know were omitted that contradict certain findings.
Sometimes the percentages and straight numbers were overkill to read.
There were some very good and interesting points taken from other countries with solutions that were innovative, although the book seemed to determine that these were the 'correct' solutions and failed to factor in major differences in the societies and legal factors.
There were good points and interesting reads, but the half-truths and seemingly purposely omitted information seemed to look for an uncrittical audience to persuade the reader to the left. I feel that addressing the information that was not presented would have made the book more neutral and seem less bias.
As describe and receive in the first day of estimate time.
We had to read this book for a Sociology class in college. It does a pretty good job of laying out 1 by 1 the social problems we have in America, and then following each problem with a cohesive number of solutions our gov't could implement to fix them. I was pretty amazed by the amount of research and statistics available in this book that our government seems to ignore. Hard evidence of what leads to higher rates of poverty and crime in our country, and yet nothing done to stop it. A great read, but also eye opening to the problems we face in the future. Recommend for anyone in the psych, sociology, or other political fields.
I think I bought this book brand new, so it's not like there is a whole lot of bad things I can say, I got it on time as always.
This text book helped me learn what I needed for class. And it came as it was described to me.
Great book that offers lots of insight on both the United States and other socities around the globe. It increases awareness of social problems and offers some solutions that we could learn from other societies. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the human services field.
This book ordered was supposed to be new. Well it is new but the packaging was not good so when received was damaged at the edges. This book was the only only did not even have basic packaging. Anyway it arrived on time so thank you very much
