Synopsis

From punks and teddy boys to mods and rockers, the last fifty years has seen the British Isles overrun with the iconic styles and attitudes - youthful 'tribes' changing the world with their bold new ideas. Britain's youth movements are regarded worldwide as pinnacles of musical, fashion and artistic expression. As a reaction to post-War austerity and social conservatism, the youth of Britain have consistently broken the mold, pioneering counter-culture movements across the world and shrugging off the shackles of old authority. The authors have amassed a wealth of exclusive interviews with key players from all the iconic groups, as well as stunning unpublished photographs from personal collections. The result is a beautifully produced visual and literary tribute to Britain's vibrant young underbelly and the passionate cauldron of creativity they continue to stir up.
