SPSSI Series of Edited Volumes
Social Issues and Interventions
Mission Statement: The SPSSI Series on Social Issues and Interventions consists of edited books designed to help fill the gap between basic research on social issues and translation into social policy and program interventions. Each book in the series is an edited volume devoted to a specific social issue- relevant theme, covering related theory, research, and application. Although not all chapters in each volume would be expected to deal directly with interventions or policy implications, the volume as a whole should bridge research and practice. Proposals for volumes in the Social Issues and Interventions series may be invited or submitted. Proposals will be reviewed by the series editor and members of the editorial advising board and approved proposals will be submitted to Blackwell for publication contracts.
