This publication examines the criminalization of cultural practices in contemporary Britain. By examining a range of criminalized cultural activities, including dog fighting, tunnel and tree dwellers, rave subcultures and joy-riding, the book reworks the notion of the senseless act and explores the performance of actual crime and violence as cultural commodity to be consumed as entertainment by a society anxious for new and more exciting experiences.
