Title
Problems in the Sociology of Deviance: Social Definitions and Behavior
Abstract
The sociology of deviance faces two basic and interrelated problems: How and/or why some people engage in deviant acts. The meaning of these two problems, the nature of theories and research revolving around them, and their implications for the future direction of the sociology of deviance are explored. The goal is not to account for either social definitions or deviant behavior, but rather to account for both and ultimately to specify the interaction and integrate explanations of behavior and social definitions.
