Description

Moral Regulation and Governance in Canada offers an outstanding selection of readings that represents an overview of the key issues in deviance, moral regulation, and governance in Canada from a distinctly Canadian perspective. It effectively tracks the sociology of deviance, from governmentality studies to theories of social control. Of particular note is the focus this book gives to gender issues. It also argues that sometimes what is considered deviant is less related to criminality and more concerned with the perception of normalcy.

Contributor Notes

Dr. Amanda Glasbeek is on faculty in Brock University's Sociology Department. She works and teaches in the areas of law and social justice, feminist criminology, Canadian women's legal history, moral regulation and governmentality studies.

Editorial Review

"I particularly like the theoretical debates between the various authors; I really appreciate the theoretical work, as opposed to the typical 'issue' focus that deviance and regulation books tend to have. [...] I value this book because of the quality of the authors that you have pulled together as well as the grounding theoretical debate between materialism and post-structuralism and its Canadian content."— “Gillian Balfour, Trent University
