"The Handbook of Social Problems" provides a unique, broadly comparative perspective on the current state of social problems and deviance in a variety of societies around the world. George Ritzer, gathers a number of leading international sociologists and social theorists to examine the relationship between social problems and a society's level of development and affluence.The essays in this volume focus on four interrelated issues involved in the relationship between social problems and the level of development and affluence: less developed and less affluent societies are more likely to experience a range of social problems than developed and affluent societies; affluence causes or at least brings with it a series of social problems that do not exist in less affluent societies; it is only with affluence that certain things can come to be imagined as social problems, such as excessive consumption; and, the very affluence of a society makes it vulnerable to problems that would not be social problems in poorer societies.The Handbook explores the theory of the weakness of the strong-in other words, strong or wealthy nations may have greater vulnerability to some social problems than less developed or affluent societies. This theory is clearly illustrated in this volume by the aftermath of September 11, 2001, depicting the vulnerability of the U.S. to social problems in far-removed corners of the world. In addition, the international and comparative essays in this volume cover other important issues such as the impact of modern technologies on social problems, ecological problems, global inequality, health as a social problem, and much more. "The Handbook of Social Problems" is a vital resource for students studying on a number of courses across the social sciences and will be an excellent addition to any academic library.

A reader on selected social issues emphasises the nature, causes and consequences of sixteen social phenomena. In this edition two new chapters have been added, namely human trafficking and environmental issues. In the chapters on rape, child sexual abuse and human trafficking, reference is made to South African laws that have recently been passed by Parliament. The content is not discipline specific, and disciplines can therefore use their own perspectives to guide their students to a better understanding of the phenomena dealt with in the title. Discussion topics at the end of each chapter can be used to encourage students to deal with aspects beyond the scope of the text. Both national and international experts have contributed chapters to this edition.

19. Indécence [2012]

Book
170 p. ; 21 cm
"Sur fond de dérèglements environnementaux et de maladies du siècle, l'indécence s'est invitée dans toute la culture occidentale. En quelques décennies, aux valeurs qui structuraient la personne et la vie sociale ont succédé l'individualisme outrancier, la rentabilité et la jouissance immédiate. L'homme contemporain, mondialisé, prisonnier de ses propres technologies, enfermé dans un présent stérile, hors de l'Histoire, n'est plus en mesure de se rendre compte de l'état du monde qu'il laisse aux générations futures. Dans cet essai prophétique, Willy Deweert dénonce sans concession les graves dysfonctionnements de la société dans les secteurs-clés de l'économie, de la politique, de l'enseignement, de la religion, des médias, du sport et de l'informatique. Il est urgent de prendre conscience du désastre annoncé. L'auteur va plus loin. Il ne suffit plus de s'indigner, il faut agir. Comment ? C'est l'objet de ce livre. Willy Deweert ose le pari que le choc qu'il provoquera sera thérapeutique et contribuera, notamment chez les jeunes, à un sursaut d'énergie et de prise en main de son destin, chacun individuellement. Ce vouloir-vivre nouveau passera aussi pas la mise en chantier d'investissements massifs dans l'éducation."--P. [4] of cover.
