Description

Perspectives on Deviance and Social Control by Michelle Inderbitzin, Kristin Bates, and Randy Gainey is a core textbook that provides a sociological examination of deviance and social control in society. Derived from the successful text/reader version, this concise and student-friendly resource uses sociological theories to explain a variety of issues related to deviant behavior and societal reactions to deviance. The authors briefly explain the development of major sociological theoretical perspectives and use current research and examples to show how those theories are used to think about and study the causes of deviant behavior and the reactions to it.
