Part 2: Functions of Crime
The notion that something with "negative" connotations, such as crime, can have "positive" consequences for both individuals and societies may be counter-intuitive, but it is an important aspect of Durkheim's sociological analysis of crime and deviance. In this short film Steve Taylor explains how crime and deviance can be functional for social order and looks at how it has influenced contemporary ideas about crime and social control.
