Format: Paperback
This book is a reader, meaning it is a compilation of readings from multiple authors. It has a bit of a symbolic interactionist slant, but this is appropriate for the topic. There are some readings I miss from the earlier editions, like Snow and Anderson's piece about stigma management and the homeless and Flower's phone sex operators. However, newer additions to the book make sense and update it for students, while keeping core classics like Chambliss and Becker.

This is an excellent book for anyone taking a social or criminal justice deviance class. It wasn't overly technical but was thorough enough for each topic to be fully covered. The set-up of the book was also very easy to follow with chapter titles aptly describing what was contained therein. Highly recommend.

I rented this textbook for a Sociology class. This book was in great condition, and I thoroughly enjoyed the class. Amazon textbooks are cheaper than renting from the University where I attend. I will be using Amazon again for my textbooks in school.

Great book for one of my sociology classes! The book came in perfect condition and was about $40 cheaper than what my school bookstore was selling it for.

Very boring book. Articles are ambiguous and poorly translated. Instead of clarifying theories, it makes them more vague. Very good for Sociology Majors. Provides articles written by researchers and gives concrete examples.
