The book was a good shape when I arrive. The book has a good book about social problems but does have a liberal bias.

I highly recommend Eitzen’s Solutions to Social Problems: Lessons from Other .

I highly recommend Eitzen’s Solutions to Social Problems: Lessons from Other Societies for any course that studies . I have found it to be a real eye-opener for my students and a great way to introduce them to primary source material. Eric Strayer, Hartnell College. The Eitzen text is a valuable component to the course Students always clamor for answer to troubling social problems and Eitzen’s text provides me an excellent set of readings to address the student’s desire to know ways others have dealt with problematic issues. Douglas F. George, UCA.

Social Problems. Wow. This book belongs one place; in a fire-pit. The fact that this liberal agenda information is taught in college should concern Americans. This book should be called how to radicalize minorities. The book claims to be "independent" and "fact gathering" however, they constantly shift between proportionality and total populations to skew statistics in their favor. The authors on more then one occasion PURPOSELY left out information that went against their theories and acted like we are to stupid to notice. They wrote the book with an agenda and went out of their way to "fact gather" information that supported their hypothesis and if they found something that didnt, they just left it out.

Example: The book suggests white people have the longest life expectancy in America because they are wealthier and therefore have better access to healthcare. They report black, asian and native american life expectancy and leave out latino life expectancy. Throughout the ENTIRE BOOK latinos are constantly mentioned as a critical part of American society but all of a sudden when researching life expectancy they just, whoops! Forget about them. Well it turns out latino females actually have the longest life expectancy in America by over 2 years according to their own sources but they fail to mention that because it didnt fit their agenda.

This book is filled with all kinds of biased "facts" just like the above example and promotes socialism. In one chapter the authors even goes so far as to Hail Karl Marx for his condemnation of Capitalism in the early chapters. Yes! All praise the guy who wrote the communist manifesto! (They left that fact out too) If you want to believe being black or poor is the reason your life sucks, read this book and take this "everyone else is the reason my life sucks" class. If you want to do something to make your life better, learn an actual skill instead looking for people to blame.

Every influential and great person in the history of the world believed individuals can change society. Social problems teaches individuals that society changes individuals and they are helpless to the worlds establishments.
This book is very good. It makes a lot of important points and is actually very, very, good for a textbook. The reason it is being given three stars, however, is that book- while very awesome, very easy to read, and very informative about social issues- is noticeably biased. Bias cannot be concealed, no matter how hard an author tries. I understand that. But the book is noticeably biased politically for one group over the other. I'm not a republican or a democrat, so it is annoying to see such petty quarrels bleed through into my social problems text. Despite it's blatant bias, however, the textbook is very, very, good and I would highly recommend it. Completely worth the buy.
The book has some random markings that are not just normal underlining and highlighting, but it's in one piece and usable.
I ordered this book also for my class and it came right on time with the other book I had ordered from them, they actually shipped them together so I was happy about that. And of course its a used book so I it has minor wear but very minor. The book I have is in better condition that what the school library has. So I'm very happy that I got these books on time and I paid a good price for the condition they were in
This was an excellent way to start my study in social sciences.
This book is really accurate and easy to read. It explains everything in perfect detail. I've learned a lot this semester from reading this book.
didnt need this book
