Summary
"In The Politics of Deviance, Anne Hendershott, a leading sociologist herself, analyzes social attitudes in areas once considered clear venues of deviance, including substance abuse, teenage promiscuity, suicide and pedophilia. In the past, she notes, a moral consensus governed our attitudes toward these and other questionable behaviors; but today, pressure groups have profoundly changed our society's norms of right and wrong."--Jacket
