  • "Shane Greene’s Punk and Revolution is an impressive and important book. It has interesting things to say about punk as a musical style and subculture, and perhaps more importantly as a disposition, an aesthetic, and a political project."

    "Is this work a serious academic query into the impact of punk as a political statement or a ludic, subversive challenge to the reader to question authority on all levels without adhering to any dogma? Most likely, it is both."

    "Punk and Revolution provides a welcome salvo in the struggle to prise analyses of punk away from their Anglo-American moorings, and Greene’s approach in doing so provides an exemplar for all the punkademics out there who see the need to jettison academia’s arcane and conservative traditions, while retaining the essence of ethnographic rigour and critical analysis."

  • "Shane Greene's pioneering book exudes a brilliant, destructive punk energy. It’s a screamed prose-theory-anthropology-zine-poem to punk, and a daring mosh pit stage dive of an experimental ethnography" — Orin Starn, coeditor of, The Peru Reader

    "Shane Greene offers a welcome enlightenment and dignity to a geo-obscurant adjunct in punk rock history, one which may be historically discredited as simply unruly but, in light of Punk and Revolution, has a revolutionary intellectualism/activism that is both singular to its culture and significant in its universal engagement. An amazing read." — Thurston Moore

  • Description

    In Punk and Revolution Shane Greene radically uproots punk from its iconic place in First World urban culture, Anglo popular music, and the Euro-American avant-garde, situating it instead as a crucial element in Peru's culture of subversive militancy and political violence. Inspired by José Carlos Mariátegui's Seven Interpretive Essays on Peruvian Reality, Greene explores punk's political aspirations and subcultural possibilities while complicating the dominant narratives of the war between the Shining Path and the Peruvian state. In these seven essays, Greene experiments with style and content, bends the ethnographic genre, and juxtaposes the textual and visual. He theorizes punk in Lima as a mode of aesthetic and material underproduction, rants at canonical cultural studies for its failure to acknowledge punk's potential for generating revolutionary politics, and uncovers the intersections of gender, ethnicity, class, and authenticity in the Lima punk scene. Following the theoretical interventions of Debord, Benjamin, and Bakhtin, Greene fundamentally redefines how we might think about the creative contours of punk subculture and the politics of anarchist praxis.
