Book Review of Thinking About Deviance: A Realistic Perspective by Paul Higgins and Mitch Mackinem
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe manuscript appears written for exposing an audience of sheltered undergraduate students to the realities of social life. Readers should come away with a widened view of what deviance is and can be. Higgins and Mackinem make a convincing argument that definitions of deviance are constructed, and these definitions are useful in coercing people to act within a narrow bandwidth.
