Crimes without victims : deviant behavior and public policy: abortion, homosexuality, drug addiction by Edwin M Schur( Book )

22 editions published between 1964 and 1981 in English and Japanese and held by 1,281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book probes three social problems, raising fundamental questions about the definition of "deviance" and "crime." Each problem involves the willing exchange between consenting individuals of a desired product or service proscribed by law. This book shows that such laws, because there is no complaining victim, are unenforceable. Their very existence gives rise to secondary pathology, abortion rackets, blackmail, police corruption, and drug dealing. The author analyzes the impact of unrealistic laws on deviant behavior, and evaluates proposals for reforming these laws
Labeling women deviant : gender, stigma, and social control by Edwin M Schur( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book appears at a time when many of the topics it covers have moved to the forefront of public attention. The women's liberation movement has promoted an increased consciousness of sexism in general, and of its many specific manifestations. Both scholarly research and academic courses on women have reached an all-time high. As a combined result of activist efforts and social research, most of the patterned ways of labeling women deviant that are discussed in this text have now come under significant challenge. The time may not be too distant when it will be possible to discuss many of these patterns in the past tense. By and large, that time has not yet arrived. The text is intended for use in courses on deviance, women, gender, sex roles, social problems and contemporary society."--Preface."
