Dr. Steve Wakeman discusses the sociology of crime and deviance and why some people break rules. Wakeman argues that crime has no ontological reality, that crime itself does not really exist because crime is contingent upon a particular time and place. The field of sociology of crime and deviance is a large field of study, encompassing a wide range of theories that can be understood from many different perspectives.
