SUMMARY

Deviant Behavior, 9/E Alex Thio, Ohio University ISBN: 0205512585 Publisher: Allyn & Bacon This best-selling text offers comprehensive coverage of all aspects of deviance and is noted for its blend of style and substance. Deviant Behavior covers a wide spectrum of theories of deviance, and analyzes numerous specific deviant behaviors. The author presents an abundance of research data, including many items that debunk our common assumptions about deviant behavior. Students are exposed to the full range of theories and data on deviance, and are challenged to think about and evaluate their own biases and preconceptions. As with every edition, this text has been thoroughly updated. Some of these updates include: A new chapter on Internet deviance is included. This chapter showcases important and interesting topics on various aspects of cyberdeviance. Examples include seeking easy money online, searching cyberspace for sex, expressing hate online, and disrupting computer networks. A box containing a series of Myth and Reality statements appears at the beginning of each of the behavior chapters. These myths and realities are also discussed within those chapters. Examples include: Myth: When women kill their husbands, it is mostly because their victims have cheated on them. Reality: Women rarely kill in response to their husbands infidelity. They usually send their husbands to the hereafter as a desperate attempt to get out of an abusive relationship. Interesting subjects crucial to todays world are discussed throughout the text. Examples include: Does swinging destroy marriage? What are young gays like today? What causes the abuse of prescription drugs to soar? How does the drinking age law unintentionally contribute to binge drinking?Thio, Alex is the author of 'Deviant Behavior', published 2006 under ISBN 9780205512584 and ISBN 0205512585.
