The story of British youth culture stylishly told,
This review is from: MOD: A Very British Style (Hardcover)
This book is an entertaining,well researched and original study of British youth culture seen through the eyes of its most enduring and popular movement. It made me smile and think at the same time, and not many books can do that in my experience. There seem to be a few navel gazing Mod geeks on here who don't like it because it doesn't mention some club or rally they were at in the 80s - the sort who think they're more significant than Miles Davis, David Bowie or the Bauhaus - pathetic! Do what I did: ignore them, trust your instincts and jump on for an intelligent ride around what makes the British so unique. A book for Mods who are as smart mentally as they are sartorially!
