STREET CULTURE: 50 YEARS OF SUBCULTURE STYLE. Gavin Baddeley. Plexus Publishing, London, 2015. 192 pp. with 129 ills. 26 x 19 cm. ISBN 9780859654753 In English.
Publisher's description: An illustrated guide to over five decades of youth movements -- from sharp-suited mods and acid-dropping hippies to leather-clad metalheads and straight-edge hardcore punks -- Street Culture pieces together a vibrant history of countercultural rebellion. While the eye-catching attire and headline-grabbing antics of these subcultures are familiar to many, few outsiders understand the rhyme and reason that hold them together. Widely acclaimed for his work on the underbelly of contemporary culture, author Gavin Baddeley details the origins, ethos and aspirations of each group, offering valuable insight into what attracts the devotees who are willing to risk harassment and ridicule in order to stay true to themselves. Street Culture takes readers inside the minds behind the elaborate hairstyles, and looks beyond the controversy and lurid pop-culture mythology that surrounds each style tribe, celebrating this phenomenon as an expression of individualism that goes far beyond mere teen rebellion and vitally impacts upon the modern world.
