I wrote a book about the history of radical politics in 1980s American Hardcore Punk

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Longtime lurker, first time poster.

I wrote a book concerning the history of radical (anarchist, socialist, etc.) politics in 1980s American Hardcore Punk. It stemmed out of work I did during my Master's thesis and became a labour of love.

If you've got the time/interest, please check it out.

I dig it, and the people I know that have read it have enjoyed it. It's written in an academic style, so I guess you may find it a bit try, but to each their own.

i'm not criticizing your work. i haven't even read it. i just thought it was funny that he asked you, the author, if it was any good.

i'm actually interested in checking it out. i suck at reading things in their entirety tho. my attention span is much too short.

Well this is only about 100 pages long, so it won't be hard for even the most easily distracted to get through!

You should submit to punknews as a news story. Maybe get a review or two somewhere as well.

If it gets some good feedback, I might be interested in reading eventually. I have too much on my plate to risk hours on a book that may or may not be just an A college paper.

Thanks, that's good advice. I've been bogged down with other things, but plan and ramping up promotion soon enough.

In the interest of clarification, it's not a college paper, although the whole project stemmed from my Master's thesis, so I guess there is a college tie-in there. Hope you get a chance to check it out eventually.
