Youth subcultures: Theory, history and the Australian experience (revised second edition): Chapters available to download

Youth Subcultures book cover

This fully revised second edition is based on the original two youth subcultures books and more recent articles from Youth Studies Australia, and is edited by Professor Rob White, Professor of Criminology, University of Tasmania.

Youth studies as a whole is flourishing. Yet, within this broad field, certain topics consistently stand out as subjects to which we continually return. There is a persistent interest in youth subcultures, and of the complexities, ambiguities and continuities of street culture and youth group formation over time.
