Editorial Reviews


"This is a unique and very sociological treatment of a wide variety of youth subcultures, with a wide variety of normative orientations, and their place in the larger society. Students are likely to find it to be especially relevant to their own lives and the social worlds they live in--it is likely to speak to them in a way that more standard deviance texts do not."--Jeffery Ulmer, Penn State University"The approach and organization are both outstanding. I particularly like the way the author has integrated conceptual/theoretical ideas and corresponding key terms into broader discussions of subcultures (e.g., symbolic interaction into a discussion of skinhead subcultures). This not only keeps theory fresh and interesting, but easily allows students to understand how and why theory is applicable to certain areas of or topics within deviance. This makes the text unique and appealing. I would absolutely adopt it for my deviance course."--Christopher Williams, University of West Georgia"The major strength is that this book makes subcultural/post-subcultural theories accessible to undergraduate students. The level of writing, end-of-chapter definitions, and abundant examples really make this book ideal for an undergraduate audience. This is an excellent introduction to subcultures and related youth-oriented social issues."--Sharon R. Mazzarella, James Madison University
