3.0 out of 5 stars about the skins
This book more looks at the Skin head movement. I was hoping for images by Nick Knight as i admire his work and of course i love the Skin's of 69 when it was about the music. This book will brake down the Skin movement what they are and what they wear and of course what it means so it's worth buying just because of that. There are a few good images but if you're looking...

5.0 out of 5 stars For Skins Ancient and Modern, 8 Mar 2004
This review is from: Skinhead (Paperback)
Along with George Marshall's 'Spirit Of 69',Knight's 'Skinhead'is a central pillar in the sparce Skinhead dharma.Published in 1982 at the height of the second generation of Skins,the book is a mainly pictorial chronicle of the culture as it stood then,but not exclusively.A Jim Ferguson fashion notebook traces every style nuance from the 68-71 halcyon age in obsessive detail.Harry Hawke's discography lists less obvious Skinhead anthems for the discerning sound of 68-71.With compassion and impartiality,Dick Hebdige offers,'This Is England!And They Don't Live Here',an historical observation of Skinhead disenfranchisement.Knight's own photography is largely based around a group of East End Skins.Be it 12 year olds in Crombies or girls in boxing gloves,each subject gazes disspassionately into the lens,presenting the Skinhead worldview in all it's ambiguity.Straddling the generations,this is a compulsive volume for Skins ancient and modern.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for skins or sociologists, 26 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Skinhead (Paperback)
This book was fantastic. Plenty of pics to keep a skin happy and plenty of info for those who want to be skins, or know about the subculture and it's history, a bit dated now, but a classic book.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book, 30 Mar 2013

This review is from: Skinhead (Paperback)
I quite liked this book.
it has some background of skinhead culture and a guide on the various stages and fashion trends it went through, some cool pictures and a guide to some popular skinhead music.
all in all gives a decent idea of what the culture is about. not terrifically long or detailed but an ok buy.

I was hoping for a lot more info and a bigger book but found it to be floppy.
