Tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) was given central place in the 2004–2008 Home Office Strategic Plan, Tony Blair describing his government's policy agenda as a cultural 'crusade'. Scholarly attention has often focused upon the implementation of the ASB management agenda but rather less attention has been given to the fast-moving politics behind the developing ASB debate.
