Summary:
Drawing material from the USA, UK and Hong Kong, this volume allows the demystification of stereotypical presentations surrounding young people who attend clubs and/or use club drugs. The volume provides theoretical observations on illicit club drug use and supply, helping to challenge current orthodoxies on the role of drug use within young peoples' lives.
