Deviance and Social Control: A Sociological Perspective
SAGE Publications Inc
Kristin A. Bates
Publication Date :
28 Apr 2012
This groundbreaking text is framed within and written entirely from a sociological perspective, explaining the development of major sociological theoretical perspectives and detailing how those theories have been used to think about the causes of and reactions to deviant behavior. In contrast to other resources on deviance this book is primarily organized around theories and perspectives of deviance rather than types of deviant behavior or a singular approach to understanding deviance. While taking a broad sociological perspective, the authors move beyond theory by including additional sections focused on researching deviance, social control of deviance, and deviant careers.
