About the book:

The joy of teenagers and the bane of parents and educators, Goth culture has carved deep inroads in mainstream American culture over the past 15 years. Primarily associated with music (particularly groups like The Cure, Nick Cave, and Nine Inch Nails), Goth also encompasses fashion, art, fetish clubs, horror comics, and vampire cults. This lavishly illustrated book looks at Goth from both a pop and subculture perspective. Each chapter deals with a different artistic or cultural phenomenon — such as literature, photography, trash Goth, and the femme fatale — followed by an essay on specific aspects of the Goth aesthetic. The author’s wide knowledge of the history of “the dark side” and his keen eye for cultural trends make for a peerless primer of a prevalent but little understood of cultural phenomenon.
