This classic text on the nature of deviance, originally published in 1980, is now reissued with a new Afterword by the authors. In this new edition of their award-winning book, Conrad and Schneider investigate the origins and contemporary consequences of the medicalization of deviance. They examine specific cases—madness, alcoholism, opiate addiction, homosexuality, delinquency, and child abuse—and draw out their theoretical and policy implications. In a new chapter, the authors address developments in the last decade—including AIDS, domestic violence, co-dependency, hyperactivity in children, and learning disabilities—and they discuss the fate of medicalization in the 1990s with the changes in medicine and continued restrictions on social services.

A classic text on deviance is updated and reissued
Charles Horton Cooley Book Award, Society for the Study of Symbolic InteractionFrom the Inside Flap:
"[It] should become a standard text in the study of deviance definitions an the starting point for the resolution of such problems as the definition and causes of medicalization and its interrelationship with other trends in social control."
"Deviance and Medicalization is excellent...a worthwhile book for colleagues as well as for students."
"An excellent text for sociology of medicine, social problems and deviance courses...a particularly apt choice in social science courses in medical schools."
—Social Science and Medicine
