A variety of theoretical approaches to the study of culture have emphasised the significance of the creation, maintenance, and the transgression of boundaries to identities – be they social, cultural, national or personal. The essays collected in this book, first published in 1997, explore the creation of identities in American culture through analysis of the boundaries within and across which American identity is negotiated. The dissemination of cultural identity and the creation of national identity through this process has had a crucial impact on the shape of social life in post-war American culture. The contributors to this volume offer a variety of perspectives on this richly complicated process.

This book describes the emergence of DIY punk record labels in the early 1980s. Based on interviews with sixty-one labels, including four in Spain and four in Canada, it describes the social background of those who run these labels. Especially interesting are those operated by dropouts from the middle class. Other respected older labels are often run by people with upper middle-class backgrounds. A third group of labels are operated by working-class and lower middle-class punks who take a serious attitude to the work. Using the ideas of French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, this book shows how the field of record labels operates. The choice of independent or corporate distribution is a major dilemma. Other tensions are about signing contracts with bands, expecting extensive touring, and using professional promotion. There are often rivalries between big and small labels over bands that have become popular and have to decide whether to move to a more commercial record label. Unlike approaches to punk that consider it as subcultural style, this book breaks new ground by describing punk as a social activity. One of the surprising findings is how many parents actually support their children's participation in the scene. Rather than attempting to define punk as resistance or as commercial culture, this book shows the dilemmas that actual punks struggle with as they attempt to live up to what the scene means for them.

Who knew when the Young family emigrated from Glasgow to Sydney in the early sixties that the family's youngest lads would go on to lead one of the world's most loved and respected rock bands? Who knew that some of their biggest fans would end up being their own heroes, the Rolling Stones? that streets in Melbourne and Madrid would be officially named in their honour? that they would play to two million people at a single concert in Moscow? For the first time, Murray Engleheart along with Arnaud Durieux tells the full story of Australia's greatest and loudest rock n' rock export. Not only did they manage to emerge from the tragic death of legendary singer, Bon Scott in 1980. But in a bitter sweet irony, the band's fortunes and status skyrocketed around the world with Scott's replacement, Brian Johnson and the album, Back In Black. More than 25 years on, AC/DC show no sign of slowing down and are more an institution than simply a rock band. try and imagine a world without them.

I Found My Friends recreates the short and tempestuous times of Nirvana through the musicians and producers who played and interacted with the band. The guides for this trip didn't just watch the life of this legendary band—they lived it. Soulsby interviewed over 150 musicians from bands that played and toured with Nirvana, including well-known alternative and grunge bands like Dinosaur Jr., The Dead Kennedys, and Butthole Surfers, as well as scores of smaller, but no less fascinating bands. In this groundbreaking look at a legendary band, readers will see a more personal history of Nirvana than ever before, including Nirvana's consideration of nearly a dozen previously unmentioned candidates for drummer before settling on David Grohl, a recounting of Nirvana's famously disastrous South American shows from never-before-heard sources on Brazilian and Argentine sides, and the man who hosted the first ever Nirvana gig's recollections of jamming with the band at that inaugural event. I Found My Friends relives Nirvana's meteoric rise from the days before the legend to through their increasingly damaged superstardom. More than twenty years after Kurt Cobain's tragic death, Nick Soulsby removes the posthumous halo from the brow of Kurt Cobain and travels back through time to observe one of rock and roll‘s most critical bands as no one has ever seen them before.

AC/DC are without doubt one of the world’s biggest bands. Their appeal lies in blending the fierce energy and all-out guns-blazing attack of heavy metal with the bluesy groove and infectious boogie of the Stones. In 2013 it will be 40 years since AC/DC were founded, and they’re still rocking, still hitting the road, and still selling out stadiums, while their back catalogue – boasting classic albums like Back in Black and Highway to Hell – continues to dominate the airtime of radio stations and pub juke boxes the world over. Acclaimed by both fans and critics, this is the definitive account of the world’s greatest rock and roll band, presenting the whole story –from humble beginnings in Australia, through the sudden death of founding member Bon Scott and his replacement with Geordie singer Brian Johnson, a string of peerless albums in the ’70s and early ’80s, and adrenalin-soaked live performances. AC/DC: Maximum Rock & Roll is a must-have for anyone who wants to reacquaint themselves with the world’s greatest rock & roll band, and the perfect starting place for those ‘about to rock…’
