A Primer on Crime, Deviance and Social Harm
As with the first edition of this remarkable and indispensable book, this thoroughly revised second version pushes readers to broaden the way they think about deviance and social harm in modern societiesand to recognize the connections between the behaviors that often trouble us the most and the increasingly precarious and neglectful character of the contemporary global social order. Professor Elliott Currie, University of California, Irvine, USA A collection of fascinating insights into acts of deviance so wide and varied that conformity appears to an increasingly rare commodity. However, as the chapters in this volume attest, even as we become more diverse we are ever more policed. A book for our times. Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford Shades of Deviance is a thought-provoking collection bringing together short essays on a vast range of issues that are viewed in contemporary society as deviant, harmful, or criminal. Questioning the value of mainstream approaches which prioritise a focus on state defined problematic behaviours, this second edition collection includes 60 entries with new topics and authors covering low level issues such as yarnbombing to the more serious such as terrorism and child soldiers. Written in a thoroughly engaging and accessible manner, this introductory text is a must read for all criminology students. Professor Christina Pantazis, University of Bristol Questions of deviance lie at the heart of criminological inquiry. The breadth and sociological curiosity that informs this book make it both a useful and highly enjoyable introduction to the topic. It will be a useful companion to students of criminology and several other social science disciplines. In fact, it creates a real danger that it will convert the latter into the former. Professor Katja Franko, University of Oslo
