Description - Global Social Problems by Professor Vic George

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.
