Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book provides a vivid account of recreational drug use and drug dealing in club land in modern urban Britain, drawing on the author's experience of working in a London night club. The mechanics of the drug trade within this night-time economy are described from the perspective of the key actors, and new light is shed on the way users of these clubs perceive and justify their often risky leisure choices. Instead of characterizing these trends as uniformly negative, the book argues that this dance drug subculture presents a risky, but relatively low violent alternative to the mainstream. Night Clubbing explores both the different strategies of regulation taken towards these developments, and the normative and practical problems associated with other current approaches. It provides a highly readable vindication of the ethnographic approach.
