Acerca de


Perspectives on Deviance and Social Control by Michelle Inderbitzin, Kristin Bates, and Randy Gainey is a core textbook that provides a sociological examination of deviance and social control in society.  Derived from the successful text/reader version, this concise and student-friendly resource uses sociological theories to explain a variety of issues related to deviant behavior and societal reactions to deviance. The authors briefly explain the development of major sociological theoretical perspectives and use current research and examples to show how those theories are used to think about and study the causes of deviant behavior and the reactions to it.

About the Author:

Michelle Inderbitzin primarily studies prison culture, juvenile justice, and transformative education. She has published papers in Punishment & Society, Journal of Adolescent Research, The Prison Journal, Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, and Criminology & Public Policy, and is currently working on research about prison education, broadly defined. Dr. Inderbitzin earned her PhD in Sociology from the University of Washington and has been a faculty member at Oregon State University since 2001. Along with her on campus classes on crime and deviance, she regularly teaches classes and volunteers in Oregon’s maximum-security prison for men and in state youth correctional facilities.

Kristin A. Bates is Professor of Sociology and Criminology and Justice Studies at California State University, San Marcos. She earned her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Washington where she concentrated in criminology and social control. She has been teaching juvenile delinquency in both large and small sections for more than 20 years. Her research is in the area of inequality and social justice, with a specific focus on issues of race and social control. Her current research project with Richelle Swan looks at gang injunctions’ impact on the community in Southern California. She is the co-editor, with Richelle Swan, of Through the Eye of Katrina: Social Justice in the United States (2nd ed.) and co-author of Deviance and Social Control: A Sociological Perspective (2nd ed.) and Perspectives in Deviance and Social Control (with Michelle Inderbitzin and Randy Gainey).


Randy Gainey is Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Old Dominion University. He has coauthored several books focused on family violence, deviance and social control, and policing drug use. His recent research has focused on sentencing, neighborhood organizations as controllers or enablers of deviance, and the use of electronic monitoring with GPS for supervising high risk sex offenders and high risk gang offenders on parole. He earned his PhD in Sociology from the University of Washington in 1995 and has been a faculty member at Old Dominion University ever since.
