This highly successful reader presents the interactionist approach to the study of deviance, examining deviance as a phenomenon that is constituted through social interpretations and the reactions of persons caught up in this social process. nbsp; This book focuses on issues such as how individuals interpret and label people, how people relate to one another based on these interpretations, and the consequences of these social processes. This perspective helps students understand both social process in general and the sociology of deviance in particular.

ER is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Northeastern University. MW is Professor of Sociology at Indiana University. His research has focused on a variety of topics including models of female sexuality, foot fetishism, intersexuality, sadomasochism, sex work, and bisexuality. Recent work has focused specifically on the social and interpretive worlds of men who have sex with animals.
