Counterculture UK - A Celebration

by Ed Rebecca Gillieron and Cheryl Robson (Editors) - £16.99  Supernova Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780956632968 | ISBN 10: 0956632963

The first comprehensive exploration of counterculture in the UK – from Asian arts to alternative comedy, from Gay Lib to eco-warriors, from punk to Feminism and much much more... What is Counterculture?
 
– It’s an alternative lifestyle... – The ideas that spark a revolution... – A movement that changes the world...
 
This new collection of essays celebrates the incredible originality of British post-war culture. British art, film, theatre, dance, literature and music have attracted international recognition, from the Angry Young Men to the Sex Pistols to Grayson Perry. Now gaming, the internet and social media enable creative communities to flourish and either fight for social justice – or just be entertained. Can we find the creative inspiration to succeed in a post- capitalist future?
 
Contributors include: Paul Quinn, Bella Qvist, Mark Edward, Tim Burrows, Hayley Foster da Silva, Penny Pepper, Coco Khan, Mark Sheerin, Simon Smith, K. Charlie Oughton, Ben Graham, Jack Bright, Ellen Cheshire, Em Ayson, Tim Garrett and Susan Murray.
