About the Book

Understanding Deviance, second Canadian edition, is an essential guide to theories of deviance framed in a Canadian context. Taking a chronological approach, it offers in-depth coverage of major schools of sociological thought, opening with a discussion of the early work of the University of Chicago School, progressing through the theories of functionalism, anomie, and phenomenology, among others, and bringing students fully up-to-date with a consideration of deviance studies in the twenty-first century.
