Clubbing explores the cultures and spaces of clubbing. Divided into three sections: Beginnings, The Night Out and Reflections, Clubbing includes first-hand accounts of clubbing experiences, framing these accounts within the relevant research and a review of clubbing in late-1990s Britain.

the codes of social interaction among clubbers

clubbing as a playful act
and personal interpretations of clubbing experiences.
