Summary

This collection of readings represents the full range of deviance sociology, dealing with many different theories as well as data collected via different research methodologies. Designed as either a main text or a supplement, Readings in Deviant Behavior includes selections with high student appeal. All of the readings have been carefully edited for clarity, conciseness, and forcefulness to ensure that students will find them easy and enjoyable to read while learning what deviance is all about. The third edition features many new articles that reflect current trends, especially those dealing with noncriminal deviance as well as those that emphasize the constructionist perspective.
