Dines, Mike, Gordon, Alastair and Guerra, Paula, eds. (2017) The punk reader: research transmissions from the local and the global. Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Letras, Porto. pbk-ISBN 9789898648792. [Book]


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.

Published by the University of Porto, this 1st edition documents 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.
