9780121028800: Manners and Customs of the Police

The handling of right and wrong, known in sociology as social control or conflict management, covers everything from a brief glance of disapproval to the horrific bombing of a city. This book contains formulations that predict and explain the nature of social control anywhere and everywhere, throughout the world and across history.
Provides a wealth of new sociological theory on largely unexplored topics such as vengeance, discipline, avoidance, pacification, negotiation, and toleration
Contains new concepts and typologies applicable to partisan and nonpartisan forms of conflict management
Offers new theoretical perspectives on:
Crime as self-help
The broadening liability of organizations
Social control of the self
The behavior of third parties
Partisanship as social gravitation
Moralism as social repulsion
Black established his reputation as a sociologist and gifted writer with his Academic Press classic The Behavior of Law. The Social Structure of Right and Wrong uses the same theoretical approach, pursuing a radically sociological and uncompromisingly scientific approach to the phenomenon of morality.
