    I've taken classes and have learnt a lot about deviance and crime from a psychology point of view, so it was interesting to learn about deviance and crime from a sociological point of view. These two fields are both very similar and different from each other, and who they affect. Psychology = the person, sociology = the society.This book covers a wide range of different types of deviance and crime, who is and how society is affected. Some of the theories I've learnt about before, but there was a lot of information I didn't know, so I did learn quite a bit from this book.And I though it was quite funny. This is a university text book, and I've graduated and now reading text books for fun.
