This book is looking at violence in the bar-room.
More explicitly violent incidents involving young men
in the bar-room are explored. As this study is a
comparative study between Germany and Finland men?s
cultures, violence and the bar as a public social
setting are analysed. The author compares different
drinking styles and patterns but also explores in
detail the history of bars in both countries.
This study is the final Master thesis the author
graduated from the University of Kuopio, Finland in
2006. The aim of this study is to give the reader
deeper insights into bar-room violence and the role
of active participants in a fight.
This book presents detailed analysis of fighting and
its course taking place, with the fighter as the
focal point. This study should enable a better
understanding of bar fights to be gained.
This book is addressed for researchers in the field
of Social Sciences, with particular interest in
alcohol research, gender studies, studies in violence
and deviant behaviour as well as for practitioners
in the addiction field.
