Read from January 06 to 24, 2012

This was a really good read that explored, in depth, the way that race is perceived and dealt with in the punk subculture. This is structured as a reader, so there are many different writers and writing styles in this book. There are many excerpts from books, letters and interviews as well. The writings are from various time periods ranging from the mid 70's to the 2000's. It offers much insight to events and situations that one may not even think about when thinking of punk. Today, most think of punk as rather anti-racist with some factions of racist skin-head types, but there is much more to it than that. I would recommend this book to people who are interested in punk subculture and who also are into cultural studies and sociological type readings.
