This subject provides a critical introduction to deviance, crime and the criminal justice system from a sociological perspective. It begins with an examination of the nature of deviance and crime, and the ways in which deviance and crime are socially constructed. The subject explores why acceptable social behaviour varies over time and in different cultures. It analyses the major institutions and agents used to exercise social control in Australian society. The subject also explores relationships between crime/deviance and social class, gender, ethnicity, and age. Various explanatory sociological theories are examined and applied to an understanding of deviance, crime and social control.
