Plot
This versatile text covers the full range of socially deviant behavior. This book is appropriate for courses in the sociology of deviance, or as a supplement to core texts in Criminal Justice, Urban Studies, Sociology, and Social Work. The book analyzes sexual deviance and its impact on women and children and shows how both government and the private sector perpetuate certain forms of deviance. The approach is critical. The language is non-sexist. And the focus is clearly on social control. An opening chapter traces the history of social control. And each applied chapter offers a brief historical vignette.
