This innovative volume provides an outward looking and international perspective on the area in an accessible and thought-provoking style. The issues raised in Nightlife and Crime go the heart of contemporary debates on binge-drinking and anti-social behavior which have been heavily debated in Britain following the implementation of the Licensing Act 2003 and the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006. Such themes are also at the forefront of public policy discourse and media interest in other countries such as Australia and Spain.
