Shane Greene is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University and the author of Customizing Indigeneity: Paths to a Visionary Politics in Peru.
"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." -- Jim Donaghey * Anthropological Forum * "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." -- Ana Torres * Journal of Global South Studies * "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." -- Paulo Drinot * The Americas * "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 "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 *
