Social Threat and Social Control
Social Threat and Social Control (July 1992)
Allen E. Liska - Editor

This book examines the conflict theory of social control, particularly the threat hypothesis.

The authors use threat hypothesis to organize the diverse literatures on social control, use new data to resolve crucial issues, and integrate current perspectives to deve...(Read More)

The Politics and Morality of Deviance
The Politics and Morality of Deviance (August 1989)
Moral Panics, Drug Abuse, Deviant Science, and Reversed Stigmatization
Nachman Ben-Yehuda - Author

Second, I like his use of 'motivational accounting systems,' which show that society is not a single moral universe whose members share the same definition of deviance and respectability, but a number of moral universe...(Read More)
