Picturing Social Problems

ISBN 13: 9780199022960

About the Book

Picturing Social Problems is an entirely new kind of textbook that lets students investigate social problems through visual information. This highly innovative and accessible approach features stunning full-page figures, tables, infographics, and photos that represent the latest data and research from Canada and around the world. The text explores issues ranging from income inequality to problems in the home or school to the challenges of urbanization and living in an increasingly globalized world. Each figure, table, or infographic is accompanied by a critical analysis that explores the context, themes, and concepts evoked by the visual, allowing students to draw their own interpretations of the information presented. Exciting and thought-provoking, Picturing Social Problems not only demonstrates the power of a visual to represent a social problem, but prompts students to picture what solutions to the social issues that surround them could look like.
