The sociology of deviance was in its heyday when Prentice-Hall published this book in 1969. John Lofland traces the field from pre-World War II to the late sixties and pioneers the application of 'grounded theory' to the study of deviant behavior. In his new prologue, Joel Best writes, 'More than thirty years after the book first appeared, we have no better synthesis of the labeling approach.'

From the Prologue to the Percheron Press Edition:

'In 1969 John Lofland sought to organize the sociology of deviance. He presented a synthesis, a framework, and invited sociologists to evaluate it. That invitation still stands and it deserves to be accepted.'

Kitsuse, American Sociological Review) 'At a time when the field of deviance is being flooded by redundant books of readings, it is most refreshing to encounter a theoretically oriented work which attempts to bring together and synthesize some of the currently popular literature in this area.' (Steven G. Lubeck, Social Forces) '[B]elong[s] to a current and dominant trend in modern sociology which places deviance in its natural and total cultural context.' (Marvin K. Opler, American Journal of Sociology)
