9781305093546: Constructions of Deviance: Social Power, Context, and Interaction

Packed with the most recent and relevant articles in the field, CONSTRUCTIONS OF DEVIANCE: SOCIAL POWER, CONTEXT, AND INTERACTION, Eighth Edition, shows readers how to apply the concepts and theories of deviance to the world around them. The book's current, comprehensive coverage includes both theoretical analyses and ethnographic illustrations of how deviance is socially constructed, organized, and managed. Seasoned authors and award-winning professors, Patricia Adler and Peter Adler cover a wide variety of deviant acts-challenging readers to see the diversity and pervasiveness of deviance in society. They present deviance as a component of society, examine the construction of deviance, and explore the processes in society that create deviance. Intriguing selected studies focus on the experiences of deviants, the deviant-making process, and the ways in which people labeled as deviant in society react to that label. The balanced selection of readings is timely and engaging, while in-depth introductions, explanations of theory, and discussion questions guide readers through the fascinating material.
