Packed with the most recent and relevant articles in the field, this textbook is the industry standard for publishing the most recent and relevant articles in the field of deviance, by showing students how to apply the concepts and theories of deviance the world around them.
The text's current, comprehensive coverage includes both theoretical analyses and ethnographic illustrations of how deviance is socially constructed, organized, and managed. Seasoned authors and award-winning professors, Patricia Adler and Peter Adler cover a wide variety of deviant acts--challenging you to see the diversity and pervasiveness of deviance in society. This textbook presents deviance as a component of society and examines the construction of deviance in terms of differential social power.
Its unique 'interactionist' or 'constructionist' perspective on deviance explores the processes in society that create deviance. Ethnographic in character, the authors' intriguing selected studies focus on the experiences of deviants, the deviant-making process, and the ways in which people labeled as deviant in society react to that label. The balanced selection of readings is timely and engaging, while in-depth introduction, explanation of theory, and discussion questions after each reading guide you through the fascinating material.
