About this book

Performing Punk is a rich exploration of subcultural contrasts and similarities among punks. By investigating how punk is made, for whom, and in opposition to what, this book takes the reader on a journey through the lesser-known aspects of the punk subculture.

Reviews

"Hannerz's examination of the meanings, performances, and identities of punks in Sweden and Indonesia offers a fascinating and unique contribution to subcultural scholarship. The study combines an exhaustive exposition of the plurality of meanings and practices that exist under the contemporary punk umbrella with an intricate examination of the construction and performance of these differing subcultural authenticities through their opposition to negative conceptions of 'mainstream' cultures, both within and without. Engaging, original, and meticulously researched, Performing Punk surely will become key reading for scholars and students of youth culture and subcultures." - Paul Hodkinson, Reader in Sociology, University of Surrey, UK
