DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"Social Problems in a Diverse Society" focuses on the significance of race, class, and gender; uses personal narratives to convey how problems are experienced by individuals and groups; and applies sociological perspectives throughout to examine social issues. The text includes five chapters on problems based on inequalities: wealth and poverty, race and ethnicity, gender, age, and sexual orientation. In the third edition, Diana Kendall, who specializes in social theory, continues to blend contemporary feminist and humanist perspectives with the three main sociological perspectives. The third edition also includes new boxes entitled " Social Problems and Statistics, " which look at how statistics are used (or misused) to inform the public about social problems. Additionally, Kendall has added important new coverage of terrorism and national security, and white collar crime.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Issues of social justice have been an important part of social psychology since the explosion of psychological research that occurred during and after World War II. At that time, psychologists began to move away from earlier theories that paid little attention to people's subjective understanding of the world. As increasing attention was paid to people's thoughts about their social experiences, it was discovered that people are strongly affected by their assessments of what is just or fair in their dealings with others. This recognition has led to a broad range of studies exploring what people mean by justice and how it influences their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Editor: Nova Science Pub Incorporated

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Cultural diversity is the variety of human societies or cultures in a specific region, or in the world as a whole. The term is also sometimes used to refer to multiculturalism within an organisation. As well as the more obvious cultural differences that exist between people, such as language, dress and traditions, there are also significant variations in the way societies organise themselves, in their shared conception of morality, and in the ways they interact with their environment. It can be argued that cultural diversity may be vital for the long-term survival of humanity; and that the conservation of indigenous cultures may be as important to humankind as the conservation of species and ecosystems is to life in general. This important book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the study of this dynamic field with a focus on related topics such as: Australian multiculturalism, language identity in multicultural Canada, cultural diversity of immigrants and international trade, cultural diversity tourism, cross cultural knowledge of Native Americans and others.
