This chapter considers recent increases in homicides and ‘higher harm’ violence recorded in England and Wales since 2015 and draws upon ethnographic data collected as part of an ongoing research study of male violence to inform the discussion. Increased interpersonal violence in recent times must be understood in relation to both recent austerity measures and the longer-term decline of industrial working-class communities, which, it is argued here, collectively constitute a form of ‘slow’ violence.
