Clubbing: Dancing, Ecstasy and Vitality
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.
Malbon particularly focuses on:
the codes of social interaction among clubbers
issues of gender and sexuality
the effects of music
the role of ecstasy
clubbing as a playful act
and personal interpretations of clubbing experiences.
