Deviance Across Cultures

Constructions of Difference

Second Edition

Robert Heiner

Are "deviant" and "criminal" behaviors inherently wrong or evil? Taking an innovative cross-cultural approach, Deviance Across Cultures: Constructions of Difference, Second Edition, spans the globe to give instructors and students an invaluable--and affordable--resource for investigating the social construction of deviance. From studies on sex and drugs to examinations of religious and corporate deviance, this anthology responds to the growing need for global learning in deviance studies.
