The book addresses topics such as symbolic interactionist theory, status hierarchy, the role of style and politics in music scenes, enacting race and gender, moral panics, positive deviance, social stigma, the components of a virtual subculture, and more. Each chapter points readers to further resources, including websites, films, and books. The book concludes with discussions of resistance, commodification, and what happens as subcultural youth age.
