From The Sex Pistols to Bad Brains, skinheads to afropunks, the punk rock movement has been obsessed by race. And yet the connections have never been addressed in a comprehensive way. White Riot will become the standard study of the subject, and the ultimate reader on the topic for punk professors and aficionados alike. The book collects writings from leading critics such as Greil Marcus and Dick Hebdige, personal reflections from punk pioneers such as Ian Stuart and The Clash’s Paul Simenon, and reports on punk scenes from Tunisia to Toronto. Put together in an entertaining way to appeal to both students and fans, White Riot includes photos, lyrics, and letters as well as articles from a wide array of punk rockers, scenesters, and scholars.
