Reviews

"One of the smartest and most audacious pieces of musical sociology in years, Club Cultures anatomizes Britain's turn-of-the-'90s dance scene with the style and sympathy that Dick Hebdige's classic Subculture applied to punk."--Spin Magazine

"A wonderful book, a delight to read, and a real contribution to the literature on popular music and youth culture and to the broader literature of cultural studies and popular culture."--Lawrence Grossberg, University of North CarolinaChapel Hill

"A highly accessible yet rigorously written study of popular culture, with some pertinent points about what clubbing means for the gals . . . An important contribution not only to current media debates, but also that oft overlooked question of club music and gender."--Everywoman

"Imagine a book that could be subtitled Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Dance But Didn't Even Know Such Questions Existed."--Q magazine (three star rating)

"One of the smartest and most audacious pieces of musical sociology in years, Club Cultures anatomizes Britain's turn-of-the-'90s dance scene with the style and sympathy that Dick Hebdige's classic Subculture applied to punk."--Spin Magazine

"Skipping from discos to acid houses to raves, the world within the scene is dissected by theoretical insight and first hand experience . . . Thornton never falls short on hipster jargon."--Bikini
