Contesting the Night in Contemporary British Cities

Phil Hadfield

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

  • Makes a new and original contribution to literature on the night-time economy, policing, urban culture, and public violence
  • Written in a very engaging, easily accessible literary style
  • Includes the author's first-hand accounts and descriptions of his time as an expert witness to the licensing courts, plus interview and observational ethnographic methods to provide a unique perspective on the subject matter
  • 'Binge drinking' culture is intrinsic to urban leisure and has come to pose a key threat to public order, making this a highly topical contribution to current criminological literature
