In this brief chapter, I explore the links between the developing deviant leisure perspective and ultra-realism, a theoretical paradigm developed over many years by Steve Hall and me (see, e.g., Hall et al., Criminal Identities and Consumer Culture: Crime, Exclusion and the New Culture of Narcissism, Routledge/Willan, 2008; Hall, Theorizing Crime and Deviance: A New Perspective, Sage, 2012, Human Studies: Special Issue on Transcendence and Transgression, 35, 365–381, 2012; Hall and Winlow, Revitalizing Criminological Theory: Towards a New Ultra-Realism, Routledge, 2015; Winlow, Badfellas: Crime, Tradition and New Masculinities, Berg, 2001, The Sociological Review, 62, 32–49, 2014; Winlow and Hall, Crime, Media, Culture, 5, 285–304, 2009, British Journal of Criminology, 52, 400–416, 2012, Rethinking Social Exclusion: The End of the Social?, Sage, 2013). I will describe in very simple terms ultra-realism’s intellectual framework before discussing how deviant leisure scholars might use these resources to solidify the intellectual foundations of their project.
