Forbidden Desires
Deviance and Social Control
This informative reader introduces students to the sociological imagination in a way that is informative
and entertaining. From a pedagogical standpoint, this is an excellent reader for introductory level
courses on the sociology of deviance and social control. The collection of articles combines readings
on sociological perspectives and theories with journalistic treatments of deviance and social control.
The focus is on the social construction of deviance and the legitimizing of social control.
