Summary

This collection of 53 readings represents the full range of deviance sociology. They deal with many different theories collected via different research methodologies. This new edition features 23 new articles, ranging from noncriminal deviance to crimes in cyberspace.The text has been applauded by readers. One user writes, ";The articles have been extremely well-selected. They cover classical and current issues in deviance. Many are on the 'cutting edge' . . . the coverage of theories of deviance is outstanding because while the selections are relatively short, they convey the essence of each of the perspectives.";
