Ian McKay’s Locating the Wild Zone explores a web of connections between the festal pleasures of warehouse rave parties that occured in sites of urban dereliction, the lost personal histories of 19th century Londoners, and attempts by big business in the 21st century to transform sites of dance activity and so regulate the "leisure time" of youth. Selecting four distinct urban sectors which symbolically comprise the spaces of the dance culture, McKay seeks to penetrate the "skin of the city" and go beneath received histories; to get above the city too to reveal the geography of power, and to reveal in the hidden spaces of youth the psychic ambiences that resonate through the decaying buildings and streets.

In 2012, Ian McKay revisited this book to consider what had become of the city as studied in this book. The result was Notes from the Wild Zone.
