[Commlist] New Book - The Punk Reader: Research Transmissions from the Local and the Global

Fri Jul 26 13:36:17 GMT 2019

Intellect is delighted to announce that /The Punk Reader: Research Transmissions from the Local and the Global <>/ is now available.

Forty years after its inception, punk has gone global. The founding scenes in the United Kingdom and United States now have counterparts all around the world. Most, if not all, cities on the planet now have some variation of punk existing in their respective undergrounds, and long-standing scenes can be found in China, Japan, India, Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. Each scene, rather than adopting traditional interpretations of the punk filter, reflects national, regional, and local identities.

The first offering in Intellect’s new Global Punk <> series, /The Punk Reader: Research Transmissions from the Local and the Global/ is the first edited volume to explore and critically interrogate punk culture in relation to contemporary, radicalized globalization. Documenting disparate international punk scenes, including Mexico, China, Malaysia, and Iran, /The Punk Reader/ is a long-overdue addition to punk studies and a valuable resource for readers seeking to know more about the global influence of punk beyond the 1970s.

Edited by Mike Dines, Alastair Gordon, Paula Guerra and Russ Bestley
