The Routledge Handbook on Deviance brings together original contributions on deviance, with a focus on new, emerging, and hidden forms of deviant behavior. Within a framework highlighting the relativity of deviance, the editors have curated a comprehensive collection of chapters exploring the deviant behaviors related to sport, leisure, substance use, religion and cults, politically marginalized populations, sexuality, online interaction, stigmatizing health and body conditions, and elite and workplace deviance. The selections review competing definitions and orientations and a wide range of theoretical premises, while addressing methodological issues involved in the study of deviance. The editors contribute introductory chapters to each section, anchoring the topics in relevant theoretical and methodological contexts and identifying common themes as well as divergence. Providing state-of-the-art scholarship on deviance in modern society, this handbook is a valuable resource for researchers and students engaged in the study of deviance across a range of disciplines, including criminology, criminal justice, sociology, anthropology, and interdisciplinary departments such as justice studies, social transformation, and socio-legal studies.
