Overview

The handling of right and wrong, known in sociology as social control or conflict management, covers everything from a brief glance of disapproval to the bombing of a city. This book contains formulations that predict and explain the nature of social control anywhere and everywhere, throughout the world and across history. Black established his reputation as a creative sociologist and gifted writer with his Academic Press classic The Behavior of Law. The Social Structure of Right and Wrong uses the same theoretical approach, pursuing a radically sociological and uncompromisingly scientific approach to the phenomenon of morality.
