Synopsis The concept of "subculture" has long been of significant importance in research on youth, style, deviance and popular culture. Although in more recent years subculture has been the subject of sustained critique, it still provides a valuable point of reference for study and research.This text offers students an up-to-date and wide-ranging account of developments in youth culture research that reject, refine or reinvent the concept of subculture. Bringing together key theoretical statements with illuminating analyses of particular aspects of youth culture popular music, clubbing, body modification and the internet, among others, this is an introduction to a diverse and wide-ranging field.
