The author presents a view of nine major theoretical perspectives - religious, legal, medical, social, disorganizational, functionalist, anomie, learning, constructionist and critical. For each perspective he describes the basic theoretical images of deviance; discusses its status today; and assesses its strengths and weaknesses. Each is also introduced by a photomontage that represents the central concerns of the perspective, and by a short introductory narrative that connects contemporary social issues and the conceptual study of deviance.Hide synopsis
