Summary
Argues that deviant forms of behaviour are often a valuable resource in society, providing a point of contrast which is necessary for the maintenance of a coherent social order. Uses the Puritan settlement in seventeenth-century Massachusetts, and records of the Bay colony, to illustrate the way in which deviant behaviour fits into the texture of social life generally. -- from publisher's description
