Mod may have been born in the ballrooms and nightclubs around London but it soon rampaged throughout the country. Young kids soon found a passion for sharp clothes, music and dancing, but for some it was pills, thrills and violence. The original Mod generation tell it exactly how it was, in their very own words. First hand accounts of the times from the people who were actually on the scene. Top faces, scooterboys, DJs, promoters and musicians build up a vivid, exciting snapshot of what it was really like to be with the in-crowd. Packed with rare pictures, ephemera, art and graphics of the era. Featuring interviews with Eddie Floyd, Martha Reeves, Ian McLagan, Chris Farlowe and many more.

The suedehead subculture was an early-1970s offshoot of skinhead subculture in the UK and Ireland. Although sharing similarities to 1960s skinheads, suedeheads grew their hair longer and dressed more formally, and although often working class like skinheads, some had white collar jobs, which bred a more formal attire such as brogues or loafers instead of heavy boots. Though there were similarities in musical taste at the beginning, by the late 1970's Suedeheads were listening to 2-Tone artists such as 'The Beat', and glam rock bands such as 'Slade' and 'Mott The Hoople'. Beautifully illustrated throughout and with a foreword from none other than Paul Weller, this is the definitive visual history of one of Britain's subcultures from the 1970's.

Since its inception around 1970, the study of New Religious Movements (NRMs) has evolved into an established multidisciplinary field. At the same time, both the movements and the scholars who study them have been the subjects of intense controversy. In this volume, a group of senior NRM scholars who have been instrumental in the development of the field will offer pivotal essays that present the basics of NRM scholarship along with guidance for teachers on classroom use. The book is organized topically around subjects that are both central to the study of NRMs and likely to be useful to non-specialists. Part I contains examinations of the definitional boundaries of the area of study, varying disciplinary perspectives on NRMs, unique methodological/ethical problems encountered in the study of NRMs, and the controversies that have confronted scholars studying NRMs and the movements themselves. Part II examines a series of topics central to teaching about NRMs: the larger sociocultural significance of the movements, their distinctive symbolic and organizational features, the interrelated processes of joining and leaving NRMs, the organization of gender roles in NRMs, media and popular culture portrayals of the movements, the occurrence of corruption and abuse within movements, and violence by and against NRMs. Part III provides informational resources for teaching about NRMs, which are particularly important in a field where knowing the biases of sources is crucial. With its interdisciplinary approach, the volume provides comprehensive, accessible information and perspectives on NRMs. It is an invaluable guide for instructors navigating this scholarly minefield.

New religious movements such as the Moonies, Jehovah's Witnesses and Hare Krishnas are now well established in mainstream cultural consciousness. But responses to these 'cult' groups still tend to be overwhelmingly negative, characterized by the furious reactions that they evoke from majority interests. Modern societies need to learn how best to respond to such movements, and how to interpret their benefits and dangers. Researching New Religious Movements provides a cutting-edge analysis of the controversy around new religions in America and Europe today. Drawing on original fieldwork, it explores the battles between the recruiting factions of groups like the Moonies, and the anti-cult movements and Church societies that have mobilized to oppose these. It considers academic and media interventions on both sides, placing special emphasis on the problems of objectivity inherent in the language of 'sects', 'abduction' and 'brainwashing'. Ideal for students, researchers and professionals, this provocative and much-needed book takes the debate over new religious movements to a newly sophisticated level.

This volume surveys the religious and spiritual movements growing in popularity in Western Europe. They include theosophy, transcendental meditation, the Rosicrucians, Mormonism, the occult (including Satanism and Wicca), Jehovah's Witnesses, the Unification Church, Scientology, the Hare Krishna and the Baha'i. Stimulated by travel, mass media and education, individuals have spent the 20th century questioning organised religion and, as the end of the millennium approaches, many are turning to spirituality rooted in ancient practice, but modernised by secular experience. The book opens with analyses of how receptive Europeans are, and have been, to peripheral beliefs, including astrology and reincarnation. Today, nearly one-third of all religious bodies in Europe are based on metaphysical or esoteric tenets or derived from Asian beliefs. Individual chapters then discuss new religious movements in Greece, Italy, Switzerland, the Republic of Ireland, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany (east and west), Austria and Denmark and the Nordic/Scandinavian countries, as well as the Catholic Church's relationship to new religions.
