Skinhead, first published in and a huge cult bestseller, is now available for the first time in ebook form, with a new introduction by Andrew Stevens.

Nearly fifty years on, it remains one of the most potent artefacts of British popular culture ever committed to print/5(9).

I found that this book was very interesting and informative because there often exists a racial connotation with the word "skinhead", that actually was a working class social movement stemming from England incorporating Reggae, Ska and Dub style music and an interpretative working class fashion associated with closely shaven head-hair/5(63).

This book first came out inthe first and most well-known of a series of cult novels by Richard Allen. I went to a fairly rough school fromwhere the (scary) skinhead girls of the 3rd and 4th years would lend it to we year-old babies/5.

Skinhead: Nick Knight. In this book, Nick Knight traces the history from the original sixties skinheads to the mid-seventies revival. This book also features – discography of skinhead hits, Jim Ferguson’s illustrated fashion notebook, Dick Hebdige on the sociology of youth cults, and Nick Knight’s east end photographs.

Nick Knight skinhead. Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead is Frank Meeink’s raw Skinhead book of his descent into America’s Nazi underground and his ultimate triumph over drugs and hatred. Frank’s violent childhood in South Philadelphia primed him to hate, while addiction made him easy prey for a small group of skinhead gang recruiters/5(79).

Skinheads is the seventh novel by the British author John King. It was first published in by Jonathan Cape, and subsequently by Vintage. Set in the same new-town and Outer London hinterland as two of King's previous books, Human Punk and White Trash, it forms a loose trilogy The Satellite Cycle.

The book has been translated and released in a number of countries. The main problem for me is, after the first book (Skinhead), the story just got more and more far fetched and it became that much harder to suspend disbelief.

In Skinhead Joe was a 15 year old skinhead doing what most 15 year-olds have always done – going out and having a good time, getting drunk, getting into fights. Skinheads is an excellent book told through the eyes of three different generations of skinheads a 40 and I read a review saying that it got confusing with the different shifts of times and places but personally I did not find that.4/5(29).

Skinhead culture became so popular by that even the rock band Slade temporarily adopted the look as a marketing strategy. The subculture gained wider notice because of a series of violent and sexually explicit novels by Richard Allen, notably Skinhead and Skinhead Escapes.

Spirit of 69 – A skinhead bible is dedicated to the Glasgow Spy Kids skinhead crew. The book was written by George Marshall with help of hundreds of other skinheads around world. George Marshall was editor of skinhead newspaper, Skinhead Times from to Skinhead Girls.

The. out of 5 stars A skinhead book not for skinheads. Reviewed in the United States on December 5, Verified Purchase. I cannot disagree with any of the reviews above. This is a well written book using the negative stereotypes associated with skinheadism/5(2).

Skinhead Classics: Books for Bootboys Part Three – the 90s This is an ongoing, decade by decade, attempt to catalogue in words or less the most notable skinhead books, starting with Richard Allen’s Skinhead in and ending on ST Publishing’s output until the turn of the century.

Moffat's pulp novels mostly focused on youth subcultures of the late s and s, such as skinheads, hippies and bikers. In particular Moffat wrote a series of popular and commercially successful books featuring what came to be known as his most famous protagonist, the skinhead antihero Joe mater: Queen's University.

Paperback Three great novels in one book by the king of youth cult fiction, Richard Allen. Aggro - That's what Joe Hawkins and his mates were looking for, with their shaven heads, big boots and braces. Skinhead portrays with horrifying vividness all the terror and brutality that has become the trademark of those vicious teenage malcontents/5(7).

Skinhead is brilliantly evocative of its time and place in early s Plaistow, East London. The taut prose forms a concrete understanding of the milieu and mores of the post-mod boots and braces culture of British working-class youth and its social impact.

A lesson in Skinhead culture with memoir type tales that will have you smiling and thinking 'Ouch' at the same time. This story has a great balance of humour and harsh reality, and the clever ending left me with a warm fuzzy feeling that I wasn't expecting.4/5.They call me skinhead, and I got my own beauty.

It is knife-scrawled across my back in sore, jagged letters, it’s in the way my eyes snap away from the obvious. I sit in my dim matchbox, on the edge of a bed tousled with my ragged smell, slide razors across my hair, count how many ways I can bring blood closer to the surface of my skin.Paperback This title presents a handbook of the potent skinhead cult.

It traces the development of the skinhead movement in England, describes the characteristics and behaviour of these gangs, and explains their attitudes towards school, the police, and the government.
