Arme, Kranke, Kriminelle, Behinderte oder hilfsbedürftige Familien stellen Kategorien der Betroffenheit von soziale Problemen dar, mit denen jeweils bestimmte Institutionen der Problemarbeit und der sozialen Kontrolle verbunden sind. Diese Einrichtungen der Bearbeitung sozialer Probleme können als Ergebnis einer erfolgreichen öffentlichen und politischen Institutionalisierung sozialer Probleme verstanden werden. In den Einrichtungen der Polizei und Justiz, der Sozialpolitik und der Sozialen Arbeit oder des Gesundheitssystems werden soziale Probleme in Fälle verwandelt, die dann in einer jeweils typischen Art und Weise behandelt werden. Mit dem neuen Konzept des „Doing Social Problems“ oder der „Problemarbeit“ werden diese Prozesse und institutionellen Kontexte der Bearbeitung sozialer Probleme auf der Ebene des Alltags von Institutionen der sozialen Kontrolle in einer vergleichenden Perspektive untersucht. Mit diesem Buch wird diese Perspektive, die in den USA bereits zu einem fruchtbaren Forschungsprogramm geworden ist, erstmals in Deutschland systematisch dargestellt und anhand empirischer Fallstudien aus verschiedenen Bereichen erläutert.

Social Problems explores the consequences of symbolic interactionism in society, a theory which contends that people attach meanings to symbols such as language or gestures and base their behaviors on their interpretations of these meanings. Norman A. Dolch, Linda Deutschmann, and Helen Powell compile a number of critical and innovative essays that explore different aspects of society including mental illness, race relations, terrorism, and family life.

Authored by leading educators and authorities on the subject, this comprehensive text provides a multiplicity of approaches to social problems. They range from the positivist, objectivist, and scientific to the constuctionist, subjectivist, and humanist. They deal with a large variety of social problems including various aspects of inequality, deviance, institutions, and globalization. All of these approaches are presented in 16 fast-paced, easily readable chapters divided into five parts. Each chapter opens with an engaging vignette, to be followed by discussions of the nature and extent of a social problem, the conflicting views of the problem, various sociological theories of the problem, global aspects of the problem, social policies for dealing with the problem, and sociological insights on the problem that students can use to enhance their lives. Each chapter concludes with a summary, critical thinking questions, and internet resources.

Deviance is by definition a social problem. Since deviant behavior violates the normative expectations of a given group, deviance must be regarded as a problem for that group, since all groups of people want their norms to be enforced. Many modern societies place considerable value on personal liberty, so much so that interference with personal choices to deviate from group norms can be justified only in terms of the potential damage that particular kinds of behavior might do to the legitimate interests of others. Sociological research suggests that the social problem associated with deviance is often the behavior of individuals who violate norms cannot be justified in terms of basic values of liberty, social order, or justice. In other kinds of deviance, though, the social problem is that people or, in a more organized way, social institutions, interfere with individual liberty and self-realization. Each selection in this volume has been chosen to cover a full range of substantive problematic issues, a range of social science perspectives that can be brought to bear on issues of all kinds, and a range of social science methodologies used in studying modern society. 'Deviance and Liberty' is divided up into thirty-nine contributions and five

There is no adequate definition of social problems within sociology, and there is not and never has been a sociology of social problems. That observation is the point of departure of this book. The authors aim to provide such a definition and to prepare the ground for the empirical study of social problems. They are aware that their objective will strike many fellow sociologists as ambitious, perhaps even arrogant. Their work challenges sociologists who have, over a period of fifty years, written treatises on social problems, produced textbooks cataloguing the nature, distribution, and causes of these problems, and taught many sociology courses. It is only natural that the authors' work will be viewed as controversial in light of the large literature which has established a "sociology of" a wide range of social problems-the sociology of race relations, prostitution, poverty, crime, mental illness, and so forth. In the 1970s when the authors were preparing for a seminar on the sociology of social problems, their review of the "literature" revealed the absence of any systematic, coherent statement of theory or method in the study of social problems. For many years the subject was listed and offered by university departments of sociology as
