Unlike texts that view deviance as an “essence,” independent of the mind of the observer, Pfuhl and Henry perceive deviance, and its opposite, “normality,” as impermanent, human creations, resulting from people interacting with one another—the outcome of the antagonisms, contradictions and conflicts in society. The perspective used is identified as social constructionist: one that includes elements of interactionsts and phenomenological sociology.

This thoroughly revised and updated text offers students a study of deviance from a perspective that will correspond to their everyday experience.

About the Author:

Stuart Henry is Professor of Criminology in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology at Eastern Michigan University. Dr. Henry has published several books and over 50 journal articles on aspects of crime, deviance, and informal social control. Among his books are; Private Justice, The Informal Economy, and Degrees of Deviance.
