Vicious Red Relic, Love, The
By Anna Joy Springer, 199 pgs.
By Steve Hart

The Vicious Red Relic, Love, explores sexuality and feminism. It tackles the terribleness of molestation and death, and is probably the most punk rock thing I’ve ever read in my entire life.

Ua Mau Ke Ea: Sovereignty Endures: An Overview of the Political and Legal Histor
By David Keanu Sai, 156 pgs.
By Steve Hart

This could be included in classroom situations to discuss the historical events that led to the so-called overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

Spray Paint the Walls
By Stevie Chick, 403 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

It follows a chronological history of the band. Each of the chapters takes the title of a Black Flag song and starts with a quote from one of the members of Black Flag or someone associated with them.

Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood
Edited by Tomas Moniz and Jeremy Adam Smith, 193 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

Edited by the author of the zine, Rad Dad, and the blogger of “Daddy Dialectic,” these pieces (whose contributors include a wide array of men) delve into the idea of how to raise your child with a counter-cultural viewpoint.

Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood
Edited by Tomas Moniz and Jeremy Adam Smith, 193 pgs.
By Steve Hart

The coolest aspect of reading Rad Dad is knowing that I’m not the only one who wants to raise children in a safe environment and continue to retain our “radness.”

Encyclopedia of Doris, The
By Cindy Crabb, 322 pgs.
By Steve Hart

If you like well-written zines that cover all sorts of topics, from anarchy to sex, fishing to social ecology, or high school to quitting drinking, this one’s for you.

Austerity Pleasures
By James Payne
By Craven

Overall, I didn’t get it, but it was still pretty good for poetry. I’m just not the audience for this stuff.

White Riot: Punk Rock and the Politics of Race
By Maxwell Tremblay and Stephen Duncombe, 368 pgs.
By CT Terry

350 pages of interview excerpts, fanzine articles, and academic essays that won’t give you answers so much as give you the power to ask, and consider, even more.

Taking Punk to the Masses: From Nowhere to Nevermind
By Jacob McMurray, 233 pgs, with DVD
By Andy Conway

I got a small taste of something everyone is going to have to come face to face with as they get older—realizing that something that you can still remember like it was yesterday actually took place twenty fucking years ago.

Kraftwerk I Was a Robot
By Wolfgang Flur
By Steve Hart

Kraftwerk has always been an enigma to me. Their music seemed so cold and distant but precise and bizarre.

500 Years of Indigenous Resistance
B Gord Hill
By Steve Hart

The story of smallpox being introduced to Native Americans and the decimation of the First Nation people has been well-documented, but there was always something about that story that didn’t sit well with me.

Your Name Here
By Tim Kerr, 88 pgs.
By Mark Twistworthy

With Tim’s art, the canvas is truly unimportant; the message within the art is the focus.

Street Legends Vol.2
By Seth Ferranti, 243 pgs.
By Andy Conway

This book documents the rise, eventual fall and continuing legacies of men like New York heroin distributer Frank “Black Caesar” Matthews, flashy Baltimore drug lord Maurice “Peanut” King, and the hilariously named “Boobie Boys” gang.

See A Little Light: The Trail of Rage and Melody
By Bob Mould, 403 pgs.
By Mark Twistworthy

See A Little Light… isn’t simply a biography of a musician, but instead a biography of a gay man struggling to find his identity and who just happened to be the primary singer/songwriter of one of the most influential punk bands of the ‘80s.

Fine Fine Music
By Cassie J. Sneider, 135 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

A collection of humorous personal essays by a funny young lady.

Deep Green Resistance
By Aric Mcbay, Lierre Keith and Derrick Jensen, 556 pgs.
By Steve Hart

To be clear, they are not asking us to “like” environmental causes on Facebook. Instead, the challenge is to take the environmental destruction of the planet with all the seriousness it demands and meet these challenges head-on.

Rest Is Propaganda, The
By Steve Ignorant (with Steve Pottinger), 300 pgs.
By Kevin Dunn

Each chapter...revolve around specific issues (e.g., School, Sex, Fans, Violence)...). The effect of this approach is not unlike having each chapter function as a delicious snack.

How Shall I Live My Life—On Liberating the Earth from Civilization
By Derrick Jensen, 302 pgs.
By Steve Hart

It drives home deeply that there is a serious crisis modern civilization is facing but does allow for hope and a solution.

Flying Saucers Rock’n’roll: Conversations with Unjustly Obscure Rock’n’Soul...
Edited by Jake Austin, 284 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

This book is a collection of ten interviews and articles from Roctober’s span...By the end of each, I wanted to check out the interviewee’s music and I felt like I had an unprecedented, candid glimpse into their lives.

Edible Secrets—A Food Tour of Classified US History
By Michael Hoerger and Mia Partlow, 121 pgs.
By Andy Conway

more than just crazy conspiracy theories involving junk food and soda.

5th Inning, The
By E. Ethelbert Miller, 163 pgs.
By Steve Hart

Beautifully written, every sentence is extremely well-crafted and labored over.

By Susie Cagle, $??
By Gary Hornberger

Nine Gallons is a cool little book about someone trying to make a difference.

By Grant, Grant & Strahm, $17.99
By Gary Hornberger

Creeps abound in this terror trip to the docks, but oh what fun it is.

We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, 1988-2001
By Eric Davidson, 351 pgs.
By Mark Twistworthy

“Gunk punk”? Sorry, man. The term “garage rock” works just fine.

Skipping towards Gomorrah: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Pursuit of Happiness in
By Dan Savage, paperback, 302 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

What makes Dan such an effective social commentator is not just his quick wit, but his ability to combine human compassion with pointed, unrelenting rational argumentation. Skipping towards Gomorrah is not sentimental, even though it is grounded in personal context.
