Summary

For courses in Social Problems

Examine social problems through the lenses of race, class, gender, and inequality
Revel™ Social Problems in a Diverse Society
focuses on the significance of social inequality, race, class, and gender as key factors in understanding problems in the U.S. and worldwide. Author Diana Kendall makes the study of social problems interesting and relevant to today’s students through authentic first-person accounts, up-to-date topics, and contemporary examples. The 7th Edition has been updated to include Social Media and Social Problems boxes that shed light on the ways that social media impacts social problems today, as well as new learning objectives that guide students through the text.

Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience – for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: This Revel Combo Access pack includes a Revel access code plus a loose-leaf print reference (delivered by mail) to complement your Revel experience. In addition to this access code, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
