What happens to punks, clubbers, goths, riot grrls, soulies, break-dancers and queer scene participants as they become older? For decades, research on spectacular 'youth cultures' has understood such groups as adolescent phenomena and assumed that involvement ceases with the onset of adulthood. In an age of increasingly complex life trajectories, Ageing and Youth Cultures is the first anthology to challenge such thinking by examining the lives of those who continue to participate into adulthood and middle-age. Showcasing a range of original research case studies from across the globe, the chapters explore how participants reconcile their continuing involvement with ageing bodies, older identities and adult responsibilities. Breaking new ground and establishing a new field of study, the book will be essential reading for students and scholars researching or studying questions of youth, fashion, popular music and identity across a wide range of disciplines.

This book brings forth some new avenues for studying youth cultures (and subcultures) within emerging fields such as Postyouth Studies, Dance Studies, and other original intersections. Graduate students studying popular music, cultural studies, sociology, and youth studies will appreciate its questionings and conceptualisation about the practices and the (sometimes unusual) representations of age and ageing persons, mostly from the ''X'' Generation, in various contexts. -- Yves Laberge * International Journal of Ageing and Later Life * The book sets the tone for an emerging social system, distinctive in its acceptance and re-accommodating of age within youth culture, and provides a framework for further research -- David Lorbiecke, Tallinn University, Estonia * Anthropological Notebooks * Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. -- D.S. Carr, Rutgers University * CHOICE * Mentioned * Anthropological Notebooks *
