Product Description

From the Back Cover

Everywhere we look, we find rules. At school, at home, in the office, in our town. Some people choose to break these rules and, in fact, become deviants. But why? This book focuses on how individuals make rules, how they enforce them, how they break them, and the consequences of these social actions. This book presents the interactionist approach to the study of deviance. It examines deviance as a social phenomenon, focusing on the interpretations and social reactions related to deviance. It argues that deviance is both a cause as well as a consequence of human arrangements. The main sections cover the definitions of deviance, sanctions, the world of social deviants, and the inner experiences of deviants. It includes articles on alcoholism, crime, drug addiction, homosexuality, and mental illness. Sociologists, social workers, therapists, health care professionals, law enforcement professionals, and teachers.
