Constructions of Deviance Social Power Context and Interaction by Patricia Adler Book PDF Summary

Setting the industry standard for the most recent and relevant articles in the field of deviance, CONSTRUCTIONS OF DEVIANCE: SOCIAL POWER, CONTEXT, AND INTERACTION, Eighth Edition, shows students how the concepts and theories of deviance can be applied to the world around them. The text’s current, comprehensive coverage includes both theoretical analyses and ethnographic illustrations of how deviance is socially constructed, organized, and managed. Seasoned authors and award-winning professors, Patricia Adler and Peter Adler challenge readers to see the diversity and pervasiveness of deviance in society by covering a wide variety of deviant acts. They present deviance as a component of society and examine the construction of deviance in terms of differential social power. The book’s unique “interactionist” or “constructionist” perspective on deviance explores the processes in society that create deviance. Ethnographic in character, the authors’ intriguing selected studies focus on the experiences of deviants, the deviant-making process, and the ways in which people labeled as deviant in society react to that label. Students and instructors alike find the balanced selection of readings to be both timely and engaging, while in-depth introductions, explanations of theory, and discussion questions after each reading help guide students through the fascinating material.
