Apr 08, Elari rated it it was ok Shelves: Things I learned from this book: I must say, the occasional dismay and skepticism distracted me from the boredom this book brought about.
I think I contracted TB not tuberculosis; read: This was assigned reading for my Sociology of Deviance class, and I have to say, I thi rather unimpressed with quite a bit of the content. There was a lot of outdated terminology and concepts, especially in the chapter on homosexuality. I wouldn’t recommend this book, especially not as something to teach a class on.

It seems that the author of this textbook has failed to make any updates to the original information used in earlier editions, with much of the information reflecting the ‘s, 60’s, and 70’s.

I found myself sitting and It seems that the author of this textbook has failed to make any updates to the original information used in earlier editions, with much of the information reflecting the ‘s, 60’s, and 70’s. I found myself sitting and reading and arguing with the textbook, because it provided such contradictory information to what I have read and learned in other courses I have recently taken.
This was a required book for one of my classes. I think its an ok book for those just starting out and wanting to learn more, but for me, I already knew most of what is included in it.
This was assigned reading for a Sociology of Deviance class. I would give this book a five star rating for the subject matter and the way it is delivered. Eye-opening statistics and theories on the causes and the reactions to deviant behavior, including shoplifting, sexual behaviors, drug and alcohol use, suicide, murder, robbery and child abuse and sexual molesters.
The only negative I have about this book is that benavior statistics and theories seem to be very out-da This was assigned reading for a Sociology of Deviance class. The only negative I have about this book is that the statistics and theories seem to be very out-dated.
Most comparisons given are from the 60’s vs. Societal behavior has changed alot over the last ten behavkor because of different social media influences, and surely there are more up to date statistics on crime rates etc. That being said, it was a VERY interesting class.
Good book to read for a Deviant Behavior Sociology class. It is easy to read and understand.
