Crime and Deviance with Theory and Methods
What is crime and deviance?
In this section, we explore ideas of social order and social control through an examination of the distribution of crime and deviance by ethnicity, gender and social class. Examples will be drawn from sociological research as well as from recent patterns and trends in crime.
Crime will be examined in terms of globalisation, green and environmental crime, human rights and state crimes as well as how it is portrayed by the media.
Finally, the role of the criminal justice system will be considered in relation to crime control and prevention, surveillance, punishment and victims.
