A brief synopsis of the book via its introduction page:

"As a multi-layered (and sometimes reluctant) icon, Morrissey has attracted the attention of scholars interested in questions concerning class, ethnic, gender and sexual identities. Morrissey’s transnational appeal and the intense fandom, which he continues to attract, have also been of interest. Organised around the themes of fandom, representations and identities, this collection of essays – focused primarily on Morrissey’s solo career – examines one of the most controversial, complex and iconic figures within popular culture. Our intention is to add significantly to the emerging body of academic research which has begun to engage seriously with Morrissey as a solo-artiste and leader of The Smiths."
