Description

Robert Heiner's edited collection of readings in deviance takes a cross-cultural approach to the subject, focusing on non-criminal deviance. This reader uses examples not just from the United States but also across cultures to ask the key questions about deviant behavior. There are 28 readings throughout 9 sections, ranging from Explaining Deviance to Mental Disorders, all of which were written by top professionals in the field. Heiner provides brief introductions to the readings, helping the reader to connect the articles to specific theories and trends. The focus on socially constructed deviance is made abundantly clear by Heiner's excellent use of cross-cultural perspectives.show more
