Introduction 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.

    A reviewer

    You can be punk if you dont read this but its a great read. The book is a slice of history from Craigs POV. And to the guy making the crack about conformists, that joke is old and played out. Read the book for a good alternative to the generic punk books churned out that focus on empty slogans and 30 year old fashion

    i havent read this book...

    but making punk a threat again is distributed by profane existence and you can get it through ak press (which is where you should order subversive titles anyway instead of supporting this company).

    punk...i think not

    i was just wondering why anyone would call themselves 'punk' when punk means not conforming, you are conforming to something that tells you not to conform...think about it
