Summary and Info
Millions of young people attend raves and clubs every weekend, yet until now this has been a relatively unexplored area. In this volume the contributors offer critical insights into this very popular activity by exploring and analyzing behaviours common at raves and nightclubs through sociological and public health perspectives. Material is drawn from the US, UK and Hong Kong to provide cross-cultural comparisons, allowing for the demystification of stereotypical presentations and the illumination of concerns surrounding young people who attend clubs and/or use club drugs. The volume provides theoretical insights related to illicit club drug use and supply, which aims, in part, to challenge current orthodoxies on the role of drug use within young peoples' lives. The volume provides a badly needed objective analysis of youthful drug use, and a foundation from which future sociological and public studies on young people, clubs and drugs, as well as young people themselves, will benefit.
