This book sets out to confront the complexities of everyday life in contemporary urban culture from the perspective of the relationship between law, desire and transgression. Operating within an analysis of the political imperative of deregulation and the tensions inherent in the politics and ethics of neo-liberal economics, the book raises questions and possibilities regarding justice, community and dissent. It operates within an interdisciplinary framework and draws upon social theory, cultural geography, critical criminology and urban sociology. The book will be of interest to academics and students of criminology, sociology of law, cultural studies and urban sociology. It will also appeal to those whose interest is of a more general nature.
