The establishment, maintenance, and enforcement of the rules of social behavior is of fundamental concern for sociologists. In one volume, Deviance and Crime examines the definition and violation of various types of codes of conduct, including laws, moral codes, and cultural norms of etiquette. The book offers a balanced approach of the field by addressing both crime and deviance together, and by providing both theoretical insights and concrete information about specific forms of criminality and deviancy.

Sociology is the study of human social life and the constantly changing way society functions. Student Handbook to Sociology is a seven-volume set designed to meet the needs of high school and college students as well as members of the general public seeking clear explanations on all aspects of sociology. Within these volumes readers can explore such topics as groups and organizations, aging, race and ethnicity, family, religion, education, collective behavior, sexuality, social class and much more. Written in an engaging style and with helpful sidebars and case studies, this set will be a one-stop source for anyone interested in learning more about this fascinating field.
