"This book presents an engaging examination of trends in substance use among youth, providing an important update to the first edition. The authors highlight a number of important and surprising changes in drug perceptions and the relevance of these perceptions for key developmental milestones in adolescence and young adulthood." - Kelly Arbeau, Lecturer in Psychology, The King's University College, Canada "The first edition of Illegal Leisure rightly achieved wide-acclaim, and much critical discussion, for its close mapping and theorisation of the 'normalisation' of illicit drug use in Britain during the 1990s. This second edition continues the story. Illegal Leisure Re-visited will be much welcomed by students, researchers and lecturers interested in the most important questions about drug use in contemporary Britain." - Robert MacDonald, Professor of Sociology, Teesside University, UK
