PETER STANFIELD is a professor in the department of film at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England. He is the author of several books, including The Cool and the Crazy: Pop Fifties Cinema (Rutgers University Press).
"When Peter Stanfield publishes a book, it's a cult cinephile's
cause for celebration. Outside of the woefully out-of-print Big
Book of Biker Movies, this is the best work on the subgenre
yet."-- "Flick Attack"
"No one has gone as far as Stanfield in conceptualizing the notion of the film 'cycle.' Hoodlum Movies is a strong, interesting, and original look at the biker genre, an understudied set of films."--William Straw "author of Cyanide and Sin: Visualizing Crime in 50's America"
