STARTING POINTS

The approach which I present in this book is related to a set of debates, literatures, academic disciplines and sub-disciplines that are concerned with the changing geographies of young people’s leisure and lifestyles, as well as the consuming activities through which these lifestyles are constituted-materially, but crucially also experientially and imaginatively. A central theme of ‘The night out’, which forms the main part of the book, is a concern with this constitution of clubbing as simultaneously practical and emotional.
