The Graffiti Subculture: Youth, Masculinity and Identity in London and New York
This book is the most extensive contribution to our understanding of the graffiti subculture to date. Using insights from ethnographic research conducted in London and New York, this book explores the varying ways young men use graffiti to construct masculinity, claim power, and establish independence from the institutions which define, and often limit, them as young people. Forging a link between subcultural practice and identity construction, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in new understandings of youth and their subcultures.

Decent attempt to dissect the mind of the vandal (this coming from a former vandal.) Not particularly interesting to me, but pretty spot on conclusions. Read full review
