Tammy L. Anderson is a professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the University of Delaware.

Sex, Drugs, and Death: Addressing Youth Problems in American Society explores how youth lifestyles, identity pursuits, behaviors and activities produce a wide range of social problems in contemporary society. The book focuses on the interconnections between three of the most significant youth issues: sexuality, substance use and suicide. The book pays special attention to the unique pursuits of young people and the locations in which they interact, including virtual places like Facebook and more actual ones such as high school, college, and nightclubs. Patterns among females and males of various class, race, and ethnic backgrounds are also featured prominently in the text as well as how sociologists think about and study them.
The goal of this new, unique Series is to offer readable, teachable "thinking frames" on today.s social problems and social issues by leading scholars, all in short sixty page or shorter formats, and available for view on https://routledge.customgateway.com/routledge-social-issues.html.
For instructors teaching a wide range of courses in the social sciences, the Routledge Social Issues Collection now offers the best of both worlds: originally written short texts that provide "overviews" to important social issues as well as teachable excerpts from larger works previously published by Routledge and other presses.
