So this was the textbook for my Deviant Behavior class. The main problem I had with it was almost all of the readings were 40-100 years old, which makes it seem like there's been no new scholarship in the last few decades (other than the one token "contemporary applications" essay at the end of each unit which wasn't even assigned for class). And I really, really disagreed with some of the theories. But most of them were at least short and semi-interesting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0875814190, Paperback)

THEORIES OF DEVIANCE exposes students to theoretical foundation statements from diverse sociological perspectives. It provides the key passages about deviance that should be read in the original and offers students a varied theoretical background for the study of deviance. As they examine seminal contributions, students will develop heightened critical insight and appreciation for the complexities of theory construction. The selections represent the mainstream approaches in the sociology of deviance, as well as more recent approaches.
