How can we solve
our social problems?
Poverty, crime, drug abuse, racial and gender inequality. These are
problems that have plagued society from the start. But what do we do
to solve them? Hanover Professor Jim Crone’s new book discusses how
we can take specific and realistic steps. Maintaining a sense of
sociological objectivity throughout, and without moralizing, he
describes what could be done to solve some of the most pervasive
social problems in America today.
In the preface, Crone is quick to point out that the suggestions in this
book are just that, suggestions. “I present what we can do,” he writes,
“but you will need to decide what we should do.” The book discusses
the barriers we face but he presents them as a means to gain a “realistic
and pragmatic outlook,” neither pessimistic and hopeless nor naïve
and innocent. The book concludes with Crone’s predictions for
societal change. To learn more or purchase a copy, go to
When Sherry Marx ’89 was in graduate school, she witnessed instances of
passive racism in the classroom that both angered and intrigued her. Pursuing
the topic further, Marx went on to write her doctoral dissertation at the
University of Texas on the subject. The Hanover alumna received two awards
from the American Education Research Association; one for her methodology
and another for social context. The dissertation also resulted in the publish-
ing of her first book, “Revealing the Invisible: Confronting Passive Racism in
The book outlines the steps she took to help teachers identify their own racial
prejudices as well as ways to avoid it. To try to get to the bottom of the
classroom racism, Marx set up nine interviews with different teachers to
record conversations she had with them.
“I saw that they were saying racist things,” said Marx. She played the conver-
sations back to the interviewee to help them identify their “invisible” bigotry.
A lot of self-work and self-reflection should be involved, Marx explained.
“Everyone can benefit from examining racism.” To learn more or to purchase
