Book launch: "Smash the System: Punk anarchism as a culture of resistance"

Short url:

Freedom Bookshop is delighted to host the English launch of "Smash the System: Punk Anarchism as a Culture of Resistance", the first volume of the Anarchism and Punk Book project series.

Come down to the shop on the 21st December for a Q&A with the editors and a member of the CrimethInc. collective.

From the editors:
"Punk and anarchism have been intertwined since punk first blasted into the public consciousness some 45 years ago, and, while the relationship is complicated (and not ubiquitous), anarchism has been identified as punk’s ‘primary political companion’ (Worley 2017).

But, close investigation of the connections between anarchism and punk has been scant – it’s either taken-for-granted, lurks in the background of other topics of analysis, or is ignored completely. We’re going to change that, with the publication of four books about various aspects of the punk/anarchism relationship."
