Subcultures attract a great deal of interest, both in popular media and in academic work.

Comprehensive and fascinating, these four volumes represent work on subcultures across several disciplines: cultural history, cultural studies, criminology and sociology. Beginning by looking at accounts of subcultures in sixteenth-century England, the set then presents case studies that contrast work on gangs and graffiti with CCCS work on subcultures. Volume three then follows CCCS work on punks, by turning to music subcultures, and, lastly, the fourth volume highlights five recent trends in subcultural studies - body subcultures, sexed subcultures, fan and micro-media communities, grassroots and 'neo-pagan' subcultures, and 'virtual communities' and cybercultures.
