Description

This book, first published in 1973, explores the manner in which conceptions of deviancy arise and shows how the attitudes of non-deviants, of society and of authority, are as instrumental in forming these conceptions as the actions of the deviants themselves. Chapters include discussions on the definition of deviants and deviancy and the enforcement of laws, alongside a detailed introduction. This title will be of particular value to students and scholars with an interest in criminology and the sociology and psychology of deviancy.

Table of Contents

Acknowledgements; Introduction; 1. Definitions of deviants and deviancy 2. The effects of deviant organisation 3. Authoritative definitions of deviancy 4. The enforcement of laws; Conclusion; Index
