Summary

This interesting, comprehensive book examines deviant behavior from the point of view that humans are rule-making and rule-enforcing creatures.Deviant Behavior, 8th ed.recognizes that humans are also rebellious and irrepressible: hence, deviant. These processes of rule-making, relu-violation, and rule-enforcement are the core of human life; and the sociology of deviance is a field of study that is flourishing. Understanding unconventional or undesirable behavior, beliefs, and traits is necessary to understanding the human condition, and society as we know it today.Comprehensive yet readable, this book covers: methods in social research; criminal violence; legal and illegal drugs; sexual deviance; unconventional beliefs; mental disorder; physical characteristics; and deviant organizational behavior.An excellent reference work for those involved in law enforcement and the legal system, as well as therapists, social workers, teachers, researchers, and medical professionals.
