This is the new edition of the popular textbook, Understanding Deviance, which guides the new student through the major sociological theories of crime, deviance and control. Examining the significant frameworks of the sub-discipline, it opens with a discussion of the earliest schematic criminology in the work of the University of Chicago in the 1920s, progressing through the theories of functionalism, anomie, symbolic interactionism and phenomenology and brings the reader fully up to datewith a thorough treatment of the radical theories of Left Realism, a new section on social exclusion and social capital and an analysis of 'third way' policies under New Labour. In this fourth edition David Downes and Paul Rock provide an objective account of the subject area that sympathetically outlines the principal theories of crime and rule-breaking, offering the major criticisms that have been voiced against them and constructing defences to these arguments. As with previous editions, the authors continue to draw upon a wide range of international sources, placing all significant theoretical developments in European and North American contexts. The result is an indispensable guide to criminological theory offering a sound, yet accessible, foundation for both undergraduates and postgraduates of deviance, criminology, and sociology. This textbook is essential reading for all those following courses in the area of crime, deviance and society.

In this collection of 48 reprinted and completely original articles, Tammy Anderson gives her fellow instructors of undergraduate deviance a refreshing way to energize and revitalize their courses. [36 are reprints; 12 are original to this text/anthology] First, in 12 separate sections, she presents a wide range of deviant behaviors, traits, and conditions including: underage drinking and drunk driving, doping in elite sports, gang behavior, community crime, juvenile delinquency, hate crime, prison violence and transgendered prisoners, mental illness, drug-using women and domestic violence, obesity, tattooing, sexual fetishes, prostitution, drug epidemics, viral pandemics, crime control strategies and racial inequality, gay neighborhoods, HIV and bugchasers, and (lastly) youth, multicultural identity and music scenes. Second, her pairing of "classic" and "contemporary" viewpoints about deviance and social control not only "connects" important literatures of the past to today’s (student) readers, her "connections framework" also helps all of us see social life and social processes more clearly when alternative meanings are accorded to similar forms of deviant behavior. We also learn how to appreciate and interact with those who see things differently from ourselves. This may better equip us to reach common goals in an increasingly diverse and ever-changing world. Third, a major teaching goal of Anderson’s anthology is to sharpen students’ critical thinking skills by forcing them to look at how a deviant behavior, trait or condition, can be viewed from opposing or alternative perspectives. By learning to see deviance from multiple perspectives, students will better understand their own and other’s behavior and experiences and be able to anticipate future trends. Balancing multiple perspectives may also assist students in their practical work in social service, criminal justice and other agencies and institutions that deal with populations considered "deviant" in one way or another.

Understanding Deviance is an essential guide to criminological theory framed in a Canadian context. Prominent theorists such as Durkheim, Merton, and Thrasher are used to highlight the roots of the discipline, while the likes of Cicourel, Matza and Garland show how early approaches can be revised for the present-day. Some of the topics covered include juvenile deviance, street crime, aboriginal poverty, global capitalism, environmental crime, and living in a risk society. To ensure a balanced perspective, the major sociological theories of deviance are coupled with any important criticisms that have been voiced against them. Critical thinking questions and other pedagogical features showcase interesting issues that reflect the complex character of deviance in the modern world and act as a springboard for student exploration. This text offers students and instructors alike an excellent resource for studying deviance from a fresh new standpoint.
