Global Punk: Resistance and Rebellion in Everyday Life

by Kevin Dunn - £19.99  Bloomsbury Publishing Plc (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781628926040 | ISBN 10: 162892604x

Global Punk examines the global phenomenon of DIY (do-it-yourself) punk, arguing that it provides a powerful tool for political resistance and personal self-empowerment.
 
Drawing examples from across the evolution of punk from the streets of 1976 London to the alleys of contemporary Jakarta Global Punk is both historically rich and global in scope. Looking beyond the music to explore DIY punk as a lived experience, Global Punk examines the ways in which punk contributes to the process of disalienation and political engagement. The book critically examines the impact that DIY punk has had on both individuals and communities, and offers chapter-length investigations of two important aspects of DIY punk culture: independent record labels and self-published zines.
 
Grounded in scholarly theories, but written in a highly accessible style, Global Punk shows why DIY punk remains a vital cultural form for hundreds of thousands of people across the globe today.
