The goal of the "Encyclopedia of Social Problems" is to provide a premier reference tool for students, scholars, and professionals with a wide range of specialities.Covering all of the major theories, approaches, and contemporary issues in social problems and their interconnectedness, the encyclopaedia will also provide insight into how social conditions get defined as social problems, and the ways different people and organizations view and try to solve them. The Encyclopedia will be organized in A-to-Z format with cross-referencing of entries around a series of broad themes. Contributors will come from many disciplines, including economics, geography, political science, psychology, sociology, and women's s studies.
