The Spinney Press has been dedicated to producing an ongoing series of books on social issues since 1992. Issues in Society titles are topical, cross-curricular resources and have been used extensively in Australian secondary schools, TAFE colleges, universities and public libraries.

Each book in the Issues in Society series targets a specific social issue and comprises a thoroughly researched compilation of the latest news, facts, statistics and commentary from trusted sources. Many titles cover a range of opinions on controversial topics, providing the perfect platform to provoke debate, stimulate critical analysis and encourage further research. Over 100 Issues in Society titles are available in both print and digital editions.

After 30 years of publishing resources on current social issues, The Spinney Press has ceased further production of new titles in the Issues in Society series. We will continue to trade until 31 December 2022 and offer customer sales support for all backlist Issues in Society print and Digital Editions – via email and online.

The last editions in the Issues in Society series (Volumes 479-484) were released in May 2022. If you need to download new or past Digital Editions from our website, please ensure you access your account before 31 December 2022.
