Goth: Identity, Style and Subculture by Paul Hodkinson
The dedication of those involved to a lifestyle which, from the outside, may appear dark and sinister, has spawned reactions ranging from admiration to alarm.
Until now, no one has conducted a full-scale ethnographic study of this fascinating subcultural group. Based on extensi Goths represent one of the most arresting, distinctive and enduring subcultures of recent times.
Based on extensive research by an ‘insider’, this is the first. Immersing us in the potent mix of identities, practices and values that make up the goth scene, the author takes us behind the faade of the goth mystique. From dress and musical tastes to social habits and the use of the internet, Hodkinson details the inner workings of this intriguing group. Defying postmodern theories that claim media and commerce break down substantive cultural groupings, Hodkinson shows how both have been used by goths to retain, and even strengthen, their group identity.
Hodkinson provides a comprehensive reworking of subcultural theory, making a key contribution to the disciplines of sociology, cultural studies, youth studies, media studies, and popular music studies.

If anything, the book is marred by being a little too dry in style. In that sense, the book is aimed at sociologists and the academic world, rather than on goths or people interested in popular culture. Dec 20, Rachel Pollock rated it really liked it.

Read this for a subcultural studies class. Although Hodkinson’s view of contemporary Goth subculture is a bit ridged compared to my own experiences and too firmly entrenches Goths in the classic subculture category, it is a impressive work and worth the read.
