My 1998 Punk Planet essay, “It’s (Not) a White World: Looking for Race in Punk,” is republished in White Riot: Punk Rock and the Politics of Race, eds. Stephen Duncombe and Max Tremblay, New York: Verso, 2011.
From the Quimby's blurb: "From the Clash to Los Crudos, skinheads to afro-punks, the punk rock movement has been obsessed by race. And yet the connections have never been traced in a comprehensive way. White Riot is a definitive study of the subject, collecting first-person writing, lyrics, letters to zines, and analyses of punk history from across the globe. This book brings together writing from leading critics such as Greil Marcus and Dick Hebdige, personal reflections from punk pioneers such as Jimmy Pursey, Darryl Jenifer and Mimi Nguyen, and reports on punk scenes from Toronto to Jakarta."
