He has written broadly on sociology and is known as a key contributor to the sociological issues in Canada. He is the author of A Sociology of Crime (Routledge, 1992) with Peter Eglin, presenting new theoretical approach to study sociology (the sociology of crime) from three sociological perspectives in submerging an alternative to corpus of sociology and social policy studies that are from mainstream sociology; critically engaging an integrative and comprehensive way on the field of sociology and sociology of crime with the three hitherto dominant perspectives, and thereby clarifies the key differences between these theoretical points of view of (1) symbolic interactionism, (2) structural conflict, (3) and ethnomethodology.
