Product Overview

The most comprehensive work of its kind, "Deviant Behavior "expertly presents the numerous sociological dimensions of deviance. Through its collection of forty-five classical, contemporary, theoretical, and empirical selections, "Deviant Behavior" explores the impact of deviance on both the individual and society. The text probes the establishment and maintenance of deviant categories; the motivations behind deviant behavior; the formal and informal labeling of individuals and particular segments of society as deviant; the effects of institutionalization; the efforts of those considered deviant to shake the label; and the way deviant categories and structures can be altered. The ten new articles included in this edition examine such current issues as being Middle Eastern American in the context of the war on terror, the increasing incidence of corporate deviance in the era of globalization, and heavy episodic drinking among adolescents.
