The Mystification of Social Deviance
Hills, Stuart L.
Crime and Delinquency, 23, 4, 417-26, Oct 77
In Western societies there are two fundamental views of social deviance: the absolutist and the relativist. This paper examines the assumptions underlying the predominant, absolutist conception of deviant behavior and their consequences for control and treatment of deviants. It then contrasts these with the relativist position. (Author)
