Inside Clubbing puts the spotlight on club culture--in all its sweaty, visceral, and seductive glory. Jackson guides us through the huge spectrum of the club experience, moving from hip-hop clubs to fetish events via queer, trance, Asian, techno, drum 'n' bass, and sex clubs. Drawing on interviews with clubbers from a variety of backgrounds, he dispels myths and offers new insights into the contemporary clubbing scene. Contrary to popular perception, clubbing is not just for youths: the clubbers in Inside Clubbing range from their mid-twenties to mid-fifties. Many have been on the scene for years and offer a historical perspective on changes over the last decade. Jackson explores the real practice of clubbing first-hand and offers the most balanced and sophisticated understanding of the club scene to date.
