Crime & Deviance: Key Sociologists

Hey, I know I'm publishing this late and there's a lot but this is the reality of the minimum amount of sociologist you should know. Hope it helps any late starters and future students.

Just a map that synthesises all the sociologist that have made substantial studies on crime & deviance in various ways. It is a useful too to print off and see if you can remember the views, opinion or studies of these individuals... Hope it's as useful for you!

An excellent tool which provides student with the basic theorist involved in the topic of crime and deviance for those struggling initially with the extensive content. This is a good tool to gain confidence with regards to knowledge which can be built on over time. Excellent.
