About the Author:


Robert Heiner is Professor of Sociology at Plymouth State University. He is the author or editor of several books, including Social Problems: An Introduction to Critical Constructionism, Fourth Edition (OUP, 2012), and Conflicting Interests: Readings in Social Problems and Inequality (OUP, 2009).

Review:


"The advantage of this book is the comparative angle, and adding more selections improves its appeal. This approach has immense potential."--Phillip W. Davis, Georgia State University


"The last time I taught Deviance I used the first edition of this book. My students loved it. I like it because the articles are very current, and because of the cross-cultural focus. This text generates discussions, curiosity and explorations into the variety of ways groups can create reality. I will adopt the new edition."--Kim Fendley, Shenandoah University


"Reading about Deviance should be a fascinating experience, it should immediately grab students' attention, stimulate their interest and make their jaws drop a bit. I believe the readings in the new edition will do just that."--Risa Garelick, Northern Arizona University


"This book's greatest contribution is its emphasis on cross-cultural studies of deviance. No other undergraduate-level deviance textbook utilizes this approach."'--Nicholas L. Parsons, Eastern Connecticut State University
