Deviance and Medicalization, from Badness to Sickness

˹
"The subject of this book is the gradual social transformation of deviance designations in American society from "badness" to "sickness." This has been the most profound change in the definition of deviance in the past two centuries. By examining the medicalization (and demedicalization) of deviance in American society, we may also investigate the general sociohistorical process of defining deviance. Thus this book has a dual focus: it is a historical and sociological inquiry into the changing definitions of deviance and an analysis of the transformation from religious and criminal to medical designations and control of deviance." -- preface.
