The Indigenous, Nonracist Origins of the American Skinhead Subculture.
Wood, Robert T.
Youth & Society, v31 n2 p131-51 Dec 1999
Reports researchers' claim that American skinhead subculture is a largely racist phenomenon that emerged as the result of social network connections between organized American racists and British skinheads. Challenges these claims, noting the influence of an indigenous and nonracist American subculture, "hardcore" music. Concludes that nonracist skinheads are a crucial element of the American skinhead phenomenon. (SM)
