Illegal leisure : the normalization of adolescent recreational drug use by Howard J Parker( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a unique insight into the role drug use now plays in British youth culture. The authors present the results of a five year longitudinal study into young people and drug taking. They argue that drugs are no longer used as a form of rebellious behaviour, but have been subsumed into wider, acceptable leisure activities. The new generation of drug user can no longer be seen as mad or bad or from subcultural worlds - they are ordinary and everywhere. Illustrated throughout with interview material, the book shows how drug consumption has become normalised, and provides a well-informed analysis of the current debate

Post-millennium trends in substance use by young people by Judith Aldridge( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This e-book is aimed to provide an opportunity for those with a focus in their work on young people's substance use to describe recent trends, and to reflect on the implications of their findings for health educators. Although all the papers in the e-book describe trends and patterns in substance use amongst young people in the UK, there is evidence of considerable overlap in substance use trends across many developed countries, and the observations made should have implications for health educators in other countries. The papers cover a range of substances: illicit drugs, alcohol tobacco, and
The Metaphysical poets by Pauline Rush( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a reaction against the Elizabethan period poetry, 17th century English poets such as John Donne, George Herbert, Richard Crashaw, and Andrew Marvell began writing in a new style. Although derisivley dubbed "metaphysical" because of its unseemly (intellectural) nature, metaphysical poetry soon became appreciated for its remarkable blend of emotion, erudition, as evidenced by complex conceits, unconventional imagery and the avoidance of smooth and regular meter. This program spotlights the works for the genre's founder, John Donne, as Dr. Daniella Havenstein of Oxford University and Judith Aldridge of the University of Central England interpret and analyze some of his best-known poems, along with the works of other metaphysical poets

Behind the curtain : the illicit trade of firearms, explosives and ammunition on the dark web by Giacomo Persi Paoli( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The potential role of the dark web in facilitating trade in firearms, ammunition and explosives has gained increased public attention following recent terrorist attacks in Europe. However, the hidden and obscure parts of the web are used also by criminals and other types of individuals to procure or sell a wide range of weapons and associated products through cryptomarkets and vendor shops. While the use of these platforms as facilitators for illicit drug trade has been increasingly researched by a number of academics, little has been done to investigate the role of the dark web in relation to the illegal arms trade. To address this gap, and with a view to supporting policy and decision makers, RAND Europe and the University of Manchester designed this research project to explore the worldwide illegal arms trade, with a focus on the role played by the dark web in fuelling and/or facilitating such trade. The research was funded by the UK Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS) under the Transnational Organised Crime theme, which is led by the Economic and Social Research Council on behalf of the Partnership. The overall aim of the study was to estimate the size and scope of the trade in firearms and related products on cryptomarkets, including the number of dark web markets listing firearms and related products and services for sale, and the range and type of firearms and related products advertised and sold on cryptomarkets
Will growth in cryptomarket drug buying increase the harms of illicit drugs?( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Background and aim: Cryptomarkets--on-line, anonymous market-places for illicit goods and services that specialize mainly in drugs--account for a small but rapidly growing share of the illicit drug market in many countries. Policy responses so far are based generally on the assumption that their rise will only increase drug harms. In this contribution for debate, we question this assumption. Methods: We provide a narrative review of the emerging literature connected to drug cryptomarkets. We use MacCoun & Reuter's formula to understand the effect of population-level increases in use on total harm as depending on the level of harm associated with each unit of use. We then consider the potential for cryptomarkets to increase or decrease the harms and benefits related to each unit of drug use, with specific attention to the quality of drugs sold and the non-drug-related harms and benefits for customers. Results: It is likely that cryptomarkets will increase both the amount and the range of substances that are sold. However, we argue that the effects on harms will depend upon whether cryptomarkets also increase the quality and safety of products that are sold, provide harm-reducing information to consumers and reduce transactional conflict involved in drug purchasing. Conclusions: There is an emerging and rapidly growing evidence base connected to the macro and micro harms and benefits of cryptomarkets for drug users. Future researchers should use appropriately matched comparative designs to establish more firmly the differential harms and benefits of sourcing drugs both on- and off-line. While it is unlikely that the on-line drug trade can be eradicated completely, cryptomarkets will respond to regulation and enforcement in ways that have complex, and sometimes unanticipated, effects on both harms and benefits

Post-Millennium Trends in Substance Use by Young People. Health Education, Volume 108, Issue 3( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This e-book is aimed to provide an opportunity for those with a focus in their work on young people's substance use to describe recent trends, and to reflect on the implications of their findings for health educators. Although all the papers in the e-book describe trends and patterns in substance use amongst young people in the UK, there is evidence of considerable overlap in substance use trends across many developed countries, and the observations made should have implications for health educators in other countries. The papers cover a range of substances: illicit drugs, alcohol tobacco, and heroin and crack cocaine. The fifth article examines specific health problems faced by drug using young offenders. Taken together, the papers synthesize results from an impressive array of good quality data sources
