Abstract

Mike Presdee was a sociologist of international acclaim and considerable personal

fascinated by the way in which young people are criminalized and controlled; of youth

of the system. Later in life he emerged as a key fi gure in the burgeoning fi eld of cultural

of human behavior for that matter) in terms of survey data and quantitative analysis.

was a chronic split between academic knowledge, the gaze from above, and everyday

that orthodox criminology was driven by the administrative concerns of the

agenda of the social scientist. Why he asks is it ‘obvious to all…that we need research into

of drink and drugs rather than why we take substances that might even include enjoyment

presents itself as part of a rational research agenda where the very presence of

of experience, their exclusion from the lived worlds of the people they research, thus

from the social world rather than those deemed marginalized and objects of study.
