Published by RowmanLittlefield
Creating Deviance is a basic text introductory text for deviance studies. Dotter identifies the convergences between social deviance, the interactionist tradition, and the construction of cultural meaning. He provides an in-depth analysis of the significant theoretical contribution of interactionism to the study of deviant behavior and crime, examining the works of George Herbert Mead, Herbert Blumer, Howard S. Becker, Edwin Shur, and Norman Denzin, among others. Dotter applies this framework to a number of specific scenarios, such as the persistence of gender inequality, the formation of youth subcultures, the contemporary politicization of race in the criminal justice system, and media generated, public representations of stigmatization. His text will be a valuable resource in any introductory course to the study of deviance and crime, the sociology of deviance and social control, and introductory criminology courses.
