    He further explained exactly what one learns from people who commit deviance. The sociological discipline that deals with crime behavior that violates laws is criminology also known as criminal justice. Additional reasons for involvement in deviant groups put forward by Bernberg and Krohn, include a desire for companionship with those sharing a similar self-concept, and access to opportunities that the conventional world no longer offers. Merton argued that crime was higher among the working classes because they had fewer opportunities to achieve material success through legitimate means and were thus more likely to adopt innovative cultural responses in order to achieve material success through criminal means — through burglary or drug dealing, for example. Erickson's Wayward Puritans for an excellent account of this.
