Product Description


“It is well organized and well written, examines a range of timely matters, and provides a good many interesting examples.”

(David F. Luckenbill)

“The author takes pains to include phenomenon that many choose to ignore. I find the author's inclusion of these to be the greatest strengths of the text.”

(Patrick McGrain)

“The greatest strengths of this book: the marshaling of a vast array of knowledge from psychology, biology, and especially anthropology to craft arguments in each chapter.”

(J. William Spencer)

“Many of the ideas are solid and the questions raised by the book are ones that must be raised in a society that often idolizes authoritarians.”

(Thomas Brignall)

“I find the writing style to be a significant strength of this text.”

(Dr. Lisa Munson Weinberg)

“Interesting examples students can relate to.”

(Niame Adele)

Rented this book for a sociology class, and it was very easy to read, also very interesting and informative. Kept my attention, and while I did not have to read every chapter for the class, I wanted to.

This book has a lot of information that is very helpful when studying deviant behavior. The chapters are long but very informational.
