Summary In the context of the unique crime problems of the US, John Hagan advances a new sociology of crime and disrepute that focuses on the criminal costs of social inequality. He connects the diversion of funding away from distressed communities to increased violence and lack of social mobility for disadvantaged groups which in turn result in the development of 'deviance service centers' and 'ethnic vice industries'.
