Product description

ContentsIntroduction by Marc Bayard Preface by the author Why Punk: Background comparisons with previous art movements; some defining characteristics of punk. Media Misrepresentations: How television, glossy magazines, and mindless mass media have done their best to defang the beast. Skinheads: Who they are, where they're from and do they have to do with punk anyway. Intra-Movement Communication: Fanzines-communcation from the Xerox machine to the underground. Anarchism: An alternative to existing systems. What it is and why it is embraced by punks all over the world. The failure of "bought and paid for" politicians has ensured a counterculture receptive to the idea that we would be better off without these vampires. Gender Issues: Sexism, feminism and open homosexuality. Environmentalism and Ecological Concerns: The ideas and techniques of Earth First, ALF, and others have found a comfortable home in the punk scene. Straight Edge: A movement that went from being a minor threat to a convervative, conformist no threat. DIY Bibliography
