Much history and theory about the world of zines is uncovered in this first comprehensive study of zine publishing. From their origins in early 20th century science fiction cults, to their more proximate roots in 60s counter-culture, and their rapid proliferation in the wake of punk rock. Paying full due to the political importance of zines as a vital network of popular culture, Stephen Duncombe acknowledges the shortcomings of zines’ utopian and escapist outlook in achieving fundamental social change. Packed with extracts and illustrations, Notes From Underground provides a useful overview of the contemporary underground in all its splendor and misery.
