Picturing social problems

Tepperman, Lorne, 1943-, author.

Don Mills, Ontario, Canada : Oxford University Press, 2018.

xviii, 393 pages : illustrations (chiefly colour), colour maps ; 26 cm.

"Picturing Society: An Introduction to 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 Society 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. Accompanying the full-page visuals are a host of other features including a marginal glossary, boxed case studies that highlight contemporary examples and qualitative research, questions for review and critical interpretation, recommended readings, websites, and films, and a full ancillary suite. In addition, an interactive learning website allows students to manipulate some of the graphs in the book and visualize how outcomes change."-- Provided by publisher.
