Review “The subjects of this fascinating book are young, white, and miserable. They are drawn to outrageous subcultures in search of status and meaning. In this sensitive account, Wilkins uncovers the inklings of a new sexual revolution.”—Christine Willams, University of Texas at Austin (Christine Williams ) “This is a beautifully, pungently written book in which telling ethnographic detail and compelling, often entertaining, narrative accounts are deployed in the service of a theoretically sophisticated, well-argued analysis. It is both provocative and riveting.”—Mary Ann Clawson, Wesleyan University (Mary Ann Clawson ) “With deft analysis and vivid ethnographic detail, Amy Wilkins maps the contours of three contemporary youth subcultures. Lucid comparisons of the tangled and often contradictory dynamics of gender, sexuality, class, and race—and of the emotional dimensions of each of these cultural worlds—make this a memorable book.”—Barrie Thorne, University of California, Berkeley (Barrie Thorne ) "Enlightening and provocative. . . . Accessibly written and clearly organized, this sociological study reveals the politics of identity that fuel white youths'' social memberships. Overall, an admirable and important addition to the growing field of youth culture studies." (Choice ) "[Wilkins] reveals the shared and nuanced cultural repertories and resources each group uses as they engage in the identity work that enables them to resolve the problems of whiteness in America. . . . A fine analysis. Her book will hold much appeal for scholars of various sorts as well as undergraduate and graduate students, particularly those in courses investigating gender and race, youth, culture, and social inequalities." (Amy L. Best Gender and Society ) "Even those readers who are not sociologists by study or trade will appreciate the candor and perception with which Wilkins writes about the subjects of the book, as well as her forward-thinking analysis surrounding the important but often overlooked, intersections of race, class and gender within these predominantly white communities. . . . Wilkins effectively digs to the core of how subcultures are formed and fostered, particularly among young, white, middle-class people." (Kelly Moritz Feminist Review ) "Wilkins breaks new ground by revealing the central importance of sexuality in establishing identities. . . . In addition to its insights about gender and sexuality, [the book] has much to say about identity, authenticity, and young adulthood. Written in accessible language and full of engaging, informative details, it is well-suited for use in undergraduate and graduate courses in women''s studies, sociology, cultural anthropology, and racial/ethnic studies--perhaps especially in introductory courses. . . . Wilkins''s book will find a welcome place on the bookshelves of scholars of gender, race, and class, sexuality, and youth--and perhaps also on the coffee tables of parents concerned about offspring who act like ''those'' kinds of people."" (Laura M. Carpenter Sex Roles ) "The clearly expressed intersectional analysis, substantive richness, and accessible writing make this book ideal for introductory level courses. The thick, engaging description would resonate with undergraduate students and would promote self-awareness and lively discussion." (Jennifer Keys American Journal of Sociology ) About the Author Amy C. Wilkins is assistant professor of sociology at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
