This book helped me immensely with my 3rd year at university, not only that it interested me so much i read the whole thing not just the parts i needed to quote from.
Starting with the historical side and questioning the queerness of pre clone skinheads is well written and gives a great account of old literature concerned with gay subcultures.
Looking at the fetish side of skinheads makes for interesting readinmg if analysis doesn't bore you, and uses queer theory and feminist theory to compare and contrast the differences in oppinion.
This is the only book i have ever found that is concerned with the gay side of subculture, thus being an invaluable find. An extensive critique and more valid research than you can shake a stick at as well as some v nice pictures makes this a great buy for people into gay culture and a bible for those who are interested with the queer side of subculture.
