    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. Each chapter builds developmentally by topic to the concluding chapter that outlines various intervention alternatives. This is a book that will fit well in both undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology, family studies, education (social justice), social welfare, nursing, criminal justice, political science, behavioural economics, sociology, and anthropology.

    In seven chapters, Antisocial Behaviour 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. In her innovative Swift intervention, Curtis also grapples with new forms of antisocial behaviour as imagined in online spaces, and examines the new ways in which communities and governments have sought to police, ‘correct’, or limit this type of behaviour. The text offers a crisp insightful synthesis of core issues in social psychology.

    Cathy Coleborne, University of Newcastle, Australia

    Cate Curtis’ coverage in this book on anti-social behaviour 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. Her investigation into social behaviour is fast paced and detailed assessing diverse and oppositional arguments as she moves towards a complex assessment of multiple factors, which shape the meaning of anti-social behaviour. Written in an accessible style with scholarly depth, the book will be touchstone for students and researchers in sociology, criminology, media and cultural studies, politics and social policy.

    I am grateful to SAGE staff, particularly for their patience. Many others have also contributed to this book, some through their faith in me, some by practical support and others by stimulating a desire to prove them wrong. You know who you are, and I thank you all.
