Investigating Deviance

An Anthology

Edited by Bruce A. Jacobs
Foreword by Barry Glassner

The highly readable articles in this comprehensive anthology explore the essence of deviant behavior--its construction, explanation, commission, and control. Substantive introductions to each section and to each article allow the book's component parts to stand on their own depending on instructional needs. Topic-specific Internet websites are also provided.

Bruce Jacobs has selected an eclectic cross-section of compelling readings. The book's theoretical coverage draws from classic as well as contemporary approaches (e.g., lifecourse, general strain, institutional anomie, feminist), with an emphasis on the latter. The empirical selections on forms of deviant behavior are engaging, ethnographic, and timely.
