Acerca de


The handling of right and wrong, known in sociology as social control or conflict management, covers everything from a brief glance of disapproval to the horrific bombing of a city. This book contains formulations that predict and explain the nature of social control anywhere and everywhere, throughout the world and across history.
Provides a wealth of new sociological theory on largely unexplored topics such as vengeance, discipline, avoidance, pacification, negotiation, and toleration
Contains new concepts and typologies applicable to partisan and nonpartisan forms of conflict management
Offers new theoretical perspectives on:
Crime as self-help
The broadening liability of organizations
Social control of the self
The behavior of third parties
Partisanship as social gravitation
Moralism as social repulsion
Black established his reputation as a sociologist and gifted writer with his Academic Press classic The Behavior of Law. The Social Structure of Right and Wrong uses the same theoretical approach, pursuing a radically sociological and uncompromisingly scientific approach to the phenomenon of morality.


Donald Black continues to present us with creative ideas, and the logic behind the sequencing of the chapters and the clear organization reveal another systematic approach to the study of social control...The advantage of Blacksapproach is important. His heuristic research strategy can help explicate social processes such as norm formation, power realignment, economic consolidation, solidarity enhancement, and deviance creation in terms of other abstract features, which are thenexamined in a variety of social contexts varying in scale, complexity, degree of formalization, and historical and comparative setting...His approach...has great breadth and is open to confirmation or disconfirmation.
[Blacks] Olympian view of both social reality and of the proper task of sociology allows those who wish to do so consider right and wrong without plunging into inevitably messy individual biographies, tangled social ties that shape frameworks of meaningfraught with ambivalence, the wandering ghosts of half-buried religious traditions, moral and ethical ambiguities in the face of perceived exigencies, or especially the specific historical contexts that generate such complexities.
