Description - Deviance and Crime by Walter S. DeKeseredy

This book sensitizes the reader to the fact that there is substantial disagreement within the academic community, and among policymakers and the general public, over what behaviors, conditions (e.g., physical attributes), and people should be designated as deviant or criminal. Normative conceptions, the societal reaction/labeling approach, and the critical approach are offered as frameworks within which to study these definitions. A comprehensive explanation of theory and social policy on deviance is constructed.

After a stint as a regular soldier in the Royal Artillery in England, he received a BA in Sociology and a Diploma in Education (Dip.Ed) from Leicester University in England, an MA in Sociology from McMaster University in Canada, and a PhD from Washington University in St.Louis in the U.S. Ellis established the Certificate in Dispute Resolution at York University-a leading program for more than 20 years.
