Ripped, torn and cut offers a collection of original essays exploring the motivations behind - and the politics within - the multitude of fanzines that emerged in the wake of British punk from 1976.


'In Ripped, Torn and Cut, The Subcultures Network provides ample evidence that fanzines can and should be taken seriously. The book will be of significance to any historian working on British youth culture, but there is plenty to interest historians working on cultural theory, ageing, personal testimony, publishing and networks. It forms an important and welcome intervention into the history of British youth culture.'
Sarah Kenny, University of Birmingham, Sheffield, Contemporary British History, January 2019
