Behind policy debate over welfare reform, AIDS funding and hate
crime laws are people struggling with poverty, illness and
discrimination. Illuminating the often-neglected human side of
society's pressing problems, this must-have series broadens and
balances readers' exposure to issues such as homosexuality, poverty
and suicide. Each anthology presents a diverse collection of
personal narratives written by individuals with first-hand
experience in the topic being discussed, either as a participant, a
witness or an involved professional. Gangs, for example, includes
the perspectives of gang members as well as those who have
encountered gang violence and those who have counseled gang
members. Each volume in Social Issues Firsthand offers a thorough
bibliography for future research, plus a list of related
organizations to contact and a detailed index enabling quick access
to target information.
