Overview "Neatly and succinctly takes readers through ways to understand and interpret the label of `antisocial' behaviour in a wider context, showing how it is socially, historically and culturally produced as well as understood in professional health and policing or correctional contexts." - Cathy Coleborne, University of Newcastle, Australia "A timely work given the present global shift in the use of social media and violence. Cate Curtis' book serves as a multinational mini-meta-analytic review of anti-social behaviours" - Richard Langford, University of Hawaii West Oahu "Cate Curtis' coverage in this book is breath-taking. It is centred on challenging taken for granted assumptions concerning the three Rs: `risk', `resilience' and `recovery' whilst questioning what is respectable everyday activities and extreme behaviour in culture and society." - Shane Blackman, Canterbury Christ Church University Cate Curtis seeks to disrupt assumptions about anti-social behaviour by bringing together a host of key concepts and theories applicable to the field. Going beyond individualised discussions, the book explores broader concepts such as the social construction of `anti-social behaviour', `risk' and `resilience', and the social contents and influences under which these are most likely to occur. An excellent companion for researchers and postgraduate students in of anti-social behaviour across criminology, social psychology, sociology and social work.
