Punk Style examines the dress of this incredibly diverse, long-lasting and hugely influential subculture and its impact on mainstream fashion. Taking a comprehensive approach, the book includes a historical overview, a discussion of motivations behind dress practices, and a review of fashion cycles and merchandising methods. Punk is frequently positioned as a forerunner of trends that later become commonplace, as demonstrated in the proliferation and acceptance of body modification, the repeated use of deconstruction as a design aesthetic, and the recent boom in fashion that reflects DIY style through handmade crafts. The book explores how this dominant subcultural style continues to expand via the internet, youth buying-power, and the constant re-appropriation of its distinctive styles. This accessible text brings the discussion of punk fashion up-to-date and provides a concise overview for students and scholars and general readers interested in the punk subculture.

The Subversive Psyche

This is an exciting and original study of the links between gender and politics in the work of six important contemporary women writers from Argentina and Uruguay. Through detailed and theoretically sophisticated discussions of texts by six key writers - Luisa Valenzuela, Marta Traba, Sylvia Molloy, and Reina Roffe (Argentina), and Cristina Peri Rossi and Armonia Somers (Uruguay) - Geofrey Kantaris shows how their writing of the 1980s, including their own critical and theoretical work, engages with, and often challenges, Western theories of the construction of gender and its relation to identity politics (notably psychoanalysis, deconstruction, and feminism). By situating their work within the political turmoil of the period - the brutal military dictatorships and the necessity of political or cultural exile - Kantaris is able to show how these texts signal a shift of cultural perspective in the Southern Cone, in which gender is no longer ignored in the construction of national and political narratives.
