Mods and Rockers.

Mods and Rockers

Mods and Rockers [Paperback].
Gareth Brown
(Author).

During the spring of ’64, an unparalleled moral panic spread among the people of Britain, as two bitterly opposed domestic factions, the likes of which had not been seen before, gripped the nation with fear: Mods and Rockers. Growing in numbers throughout the early part of the decade, by the Easter of ’64, the ranks of these two groups – and more importantly their differences – had become so great that they could no longer be ignored. The overt hostility these two groups displayed toward each other further heightened so that conflict was inevitable.

Gareth Brown has written best-selling books on subject matters such as Scooter Boys and youth culture, and is also a world-renowned expert on social tribes.
