This text provides a comprehensive, comparative analysis of both positive and negative forms of deviant behavior as they occur around the world. Each substantive chapter includes a global perspective on specific forms of deviance being considered, portraits of deviants that illustrate the social context of the behavior, the most recent substantive findings, and an assessment of the key theoretical formulations designed to explain and predict either the incidence or prevalence of the deviant behavior. A five-part organization covers an introduction to the study of deviance; interpersonal violence; property, cyberdeviance and terrorism; substance abuse, mental disorder, suicide and self-destructive behaviors; and deviance in the 21st century. For anyone trying to understand the diversity of deviant behaviors across the globe, and their effects as they are experienced around the world.
