Abstract:

"This New Zealand collection of stories of social deviance covers a variety of topics which have attracted public attention in recent years -- for example, the abortion controversy, religious cults, Patricia Bartlett and the campaign against pornography, and New Zealander's attitudes towards homosexuality. Also included are chapters on skid row alcoholics, prisoners of war, nudity in artistic and medical settings, book theft and mutilation, drag queens, and the aged as a disadvantaged group. This book, designed for both the university student and the general reader, demonstrates that what we call "deviance" emerges from the day-to-day behaviour of us all."--Back cover.
