Weighted towards the social constructionist approach, the 42 chapters in this reader present a variety of studies and perspectives on why individuals engage in norm-violating behavior, the social organization of deviance, and the phases of the deviant career. The fifth edition adds nine articles on priests and pedophilia, strippers and their customers, sexually transmitted diseases, and child molesters. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
