Lads offers an “anthropological account of an urban youth subculture based on participant observation in Western Australia. Eschewing traditional sociological perspectives on youth, such as analysis based on social class or ‘deviance,’ he seeks instead to examine the day-to-day lifestyle of Perth skinheads, an exported and modified version of the original English youth subculture.” Chapters include “Scenes, Venues and Eras,” “Ritual Violence and Symbolic Solidarity,” “Skinhead Relationships with Young Women,” etc. Part sociological study and part storytelling, illustrated with four images from Nick Knight’s "Skinhead.
