The understanding of deviant behavior is rapidly evolving in the 21st century. For this reason, a global perspective on emerging forms of deviant behavior is essential. Deviant Behavior, Second Edition provides the foundation necessary to understand the impact of globalization on traditional and emerging forms of deviance around the world. Readers will learn what deviant behavior is across the world—the circumstances, patterns, and socio-cultural characteristics of persons involved in deviant acts. They will also examine “why” and “how” deviant acts occur—the precipitants of deviant behavior and the social processes that result in defining certain acts as deviant.
