Project Proposal

I. I am studying the British Teddy Boys, because I want to find out more about who they were as a collective, in order to understand what their influence was on youth culture in Britain after World War II.

II. Thesis: The Teddy Boys (and Girls) had an important impact on British music and the youth subculture in postwar Great Britain.
