Casuals PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Casuals free pdf First came the Teds, then the Mods and the Rockers, then Hippies, Skinheads and Punks. But by the late '70s, there was a new youth culture, one whose followers formed violent gangs, and were known as 'scallies,' 'trendies' and 'dressers' until the name Casuals finally stuck. Definitively tracing the roots of this inner-city Liverpool movement through first-person interviews with the main 'faces' of the gangs, Casuals explains how these hooligans evolved through the working-class fascination with sharp dressing to form bitter rivalries across England. With 16 pages of photos.
