In Sex Offenders, Stigma, and Social Control, Diana Rickard provides the reader with an in-depth view of six sex offenders, exploring how they manage to cope with their highly stigmatized role as social outcasts. The book explores how these individuals construct their sense of self. By placing their stories within the context of the current culture of mass incarceration and zero-tolerance, Rickard provides a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between public policy and lived experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[Sex Offenders, Stigma, and Social Control] may be very useful for other scholars exploring identity construction and integration as well as the ways people make sense, narrate, and respond to stigma in the course of their lives... It does provide an intriguing and nuanced portrait of the ways such dynamics play out in relation to one of the most controversial and heavily stigmatized social locations in contemporary society."--Symbolic Interaction
"Rickard's work is an important one on a subject that has not adequately been studied, namely the status of sex offenders and the present 'moral panic.' Clear, organized, and well-researched, Sex Offenders, Stigma, and Social Control is both distinctive and brave."--Lynn Chancer "Hunter College "
