Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Skinheads, Mods, Teddy Boys, Hell's Angels, Punks, Glory Boys, to name just a few—this fascinating book is the definitive guide to hooligan history in the UK. It examines who the men behind the cults were, what made them tick, and why they fought their battles. These warring youth factions inspired copycat cultures around the globe. This in-depth book cuts through the myths that Fleet Street built up around the cults; it tells the truth about the young, angry Britain of the 1970s that inspired a kaleidoscope of chaos which continues to this day with copycat scenes everywhere from Argentina to China and Japan.
