Abstract:

"Deviance, Conformity and Control has established itself as the authoritative Australian text for students of the sociology of deviance. The 4th edition introduces students to topical issues pertinent to current debates about Australian society and culture. The central premise of the book is that 'deviance' remains an important and useful tool for analyzing certain types of social interaction. The diversity of theoretical perspectives is explored, along with the connections between the social constructions of deviance and difference, and debates around the notion of the 'death of deviance'." --Pearson Longman.
