Synopses & Reviews
The last decade has seen the transformation of recreational drug use from a minority, almost subcultural activity into a widespread increasingly normalised leisure activity. Each weekend millions of the young and not-so-young fill the floors of night clubs, dance clubs and raves. Most drink alcohol, most take stimulant drugs, many do both. What are the gains and losses of such psychoactive nights out? Is it hedonism versus health? Is it well calculated risk taken by a drugwise generation or is it dangerous illegal excess with physical and psychological costs?
Dancing With Drugs is the first comprehensive interdisciplinary exploration of dance drug use in Britain. It looks at all aspects of drug use - including the context in which they are used, effects on health, attitudes to drug use - as well as concluding with important policy recommendations.
