Deviant Behavior: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This widely-adopted text seeks to understand deviance from the key sociological perspectives and theories. Real-world examples of deviance are provided throughout to encourage critical thinking about deviant behavior and its impact.

Deviant Behavior provides a comprehensive study of the behavior, beliefs, conditions, and reactions to deviance, giving students a detailed discussion of deviance, allowing for better understanding of this phenomenon.

Deviance is discussed from the sociological perspectives of positivism and constructionism. Positivism explains the reasons behind deviant behavior; and constructionism attempts to delineate why certain actions, beliefs, and physical characteristics are condemned. This elucidates for students the two basic orientations adopted by sociologists, researchers, and theorists toward deviance.
