Abstract

[This chapter offers a zemiological analysis of the market in image- and performance-enhancing drugs. The chapter’s substantive focus begins with theoretical developments within critical criminology, most notably ultra-realist criminology, and how innovative theories of subjectivity can shed new light on the complex relationships between contemporary identity, political economy and digital technologies which underpin these burgeoning markets in an ever-increasing range of lifestyle drugs. The chapter progresses to draw upon the deviant leisure perspective’s typology of harm in order to consider the subjective, environmental, socially corrosive and culturally embedded harms that emerge at the meeting point of consumer capitalism, liberal-individualism and the commodification of body and image enhancement.]
