Fascinating new account of punk's emergence as a fashion, musical form, attitude and aesthetic in Britain from 1976 to 1984. Matthew Worley reveals the ways in which punk was constructed, understood and utilised as a cultural medium against the backdrop of a 1970s Britain in deep social and political crisis.
