This unique collection of highly readable articles offers a fresh, alternative approach to teaching deviance. Articles were chosen that will pique student interest and stimulate lively class discussion by challenging preconceived notions of deviance and people labeled as "deviant." Benefits of Deviance and Deviants: An Anthology to students and instructors are as follows: * This is not a "typical" deviance anthology. It does not include the classic selections usually found in most readers. Rather, it features less widely known empirical pieces selected on the basis of their compelling descriptions of deviant behavior - both from top journals and from sources outsidethe mainstream. * The book is organized around themes of behavior rather than theoretical perspectives or concepts. The articles examine drugs, sex, medicine, relationships, sports, work, and deviant subcultures, providing students with a basis for grasping central sociological ideas. * Coverage includes such topics as rape, transgender behavior, and child abuse - as well as a variety of types of deviance that touch closer to home for many students: sports deviance, student drinking, mistreatment of the elderly, stuttering, cheating among college students, and facultymalfeasance. * Brief, thought-provoking introductions are provided for each article, framing the piece in a larger context in terms of conceptual and theoretical issues.
Richard Tewksbury and Patricia Gagne are both at University of Louisville.
