John J. Macionis presents college and university students with a helpful resource in his book Social Problems (4th Edition), ISBN 9780205749003. This textbook provides users with an analytical look at various social issues and policies through the lens of sociological theory using the everyday political vernacular. With the goal of providing students with a strong comprehension of the viewpoints and values that define the political spectrum in America, this resource hopes to enable students with the ability to become more involved in solving social issues through being an active political participant themselves. The expert author, John J. Macionis, is decorated with several degrees including a doctorate in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. He currently serves as Professor and Distinguished Scholar of Sociology at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he has taught for almost thirty years. Macionis is also a veteran in the writing arena with various publications focusing on community life in the United States, interpersonal intimacy in families, effective teaching, humor, new information technology, and the importance of global education. He has also edited the best-selling anthology Seeing Ourselves: Classic, Contemporary, and Cross-Cultural Readings in Sociology and has written the leading urban studies text, Cities and Urban Life. Social Problems is succinctly organized across four sections and 17 chapters. Part I serves as an introduction to 'Sociology's Basic Approach' while part II provides students with information regarding 'Problems of Social Inequality.' Part III presents coverage of 'Problems of Deviance, Conformity, and Well-Being.' This book is concluded in part IV with chapters devoted to 'Problems of Social Institutions.'
