  • notes from underground: zines cover


From their origins in early 20th century science fiction cults, their more proximate roots in ë60s counter-culture and their rapid proliferation in the wake of punk rock, Stephen Duncombe pays full due to the political importance of zines as a vital network of popular culture. He also analyzes how zines measure up to their utopian and escapist outlook in achieving fundamental social change.

Packed with extracts and illustrations, he provides a useful overview of the contemporary underground in all its splendor and misery.
