Opis: Deviance and Risk on Holiday - Daniel Briggs

This book represents the first attempt to step inside the holiday experience of young British tourists. Using ethnographic methods such as observation, open-ended interviewing and focus groups in San Antonio, Ibiza, this book reveals the ugly truth about 'how' and 'why' young Brits get involved in deviance and risk-taking when they go abroad, exploring vivid accounts of drug use, drug dealing, violence, prostitution, and injury. In contrast to existing knowledge and populist depictions, Briggs argues that the root of these behaviours is not pathological but rather it is more about how this social group have come to self validate what is expected of them in their leisure time and, as a consequence, how their attitudes are subtly guided and endorsed by the commodified social context of resorts which are only interested in making money at their expense. Exploring issues of youth culture, political economy, tourism and identity, this book will appeal to scholars in sociology, criminology, cultural studies, tourism and youth studies. "Daniel Briggs has written a brass-neck ethnography of young British holidaymakers on Ibiza, a global focus for hedonism and excess [...] The book is not an easy read. It is not pretty. It describes an episodic mindlessness that might help to explain the underpinnings of the riots of 2011. Sometimes described as a lost generation, this book shows that it is a generation which needs and deserves to be understood. Even so, it lifts the lid off something that you would probably rather not know about." - Emeritus Professor Geoffrey Pearson, University of London, UK "For forty years far too much sociology has celebrated consumer culture. This is contemporary ethnography of the highest standard. Daniel Briggs uses his considerable skills to reveal in stark clarity the 'dark side' of the holiday experience. Contributing to a gathering new wave of critical thought, this type of daring and honest study will once again make sociology real and politically inspiring." - Steve Hall, Teeside University, UK "Daniel Briggs has written a highly critical, unsettling yet humorous account of the dark underbelly of Ibiza [...] In this uncompromising ethnography Briggs brings us up close and personal with the blazing hedonism of a group of tourists who seem to have lost all sense of self-preservation amidst the corporate bars and nightclubs which shrewdly market, promote and capitalize on nightlife excess." - Sebastien Tutenges, Aarhus University, Denmark "[...] Briggs' commitment to actually telling it like it is, and pushing past the redundant trope of organic cultures of resistance, suggests a return to the kinds of critical realism that sociology and criminology desperately needs [...] an outstanding study, and a valuable contribution to the field." - Simon Winlow, Teeside University, UK "The book tells us part of where we are in the aftermath of the orgy of globalisation." - Guy Standing, University of London, UK1.
