Summary

Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of deviance; this text is noted for its blend of readability and scholarship. Deviant Behavior covers a wide spectrum of theories of deviance, and analyzes specific deviant behaviors. The author utilizes an abundance of research data, including much that debunks our common assumptions about deviant behavior. Thus students are not only exposed to the full range of theories and data about deviance, but are challenged to think about and evaluate their own biases and preconceptions.
