Crisis Music

The Cultural Politics of Rock Against Racism

First Edition

Ian Goodyer

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Includes testimony from former RAR activists and supporters, musicians and critics
  • It uses up-to-date research and interview material to directly address recent critiques of the movement, for example, claims that RAR was either inherently racist, or an unwarranted intrusion by conservative left-wing ideologues into the anarchistic radicalism of the punk rock scene
  • My arguments are backed up with testimony from former RAR activists and supporters, musicians and critics
  • Places RAR within the broader context of the post-war British Left and attempts to define RAR's position within a socialist project deeply affected by the post-war crisis in Stalinist communism, the rise of the New Left and the legacy of radical politico-cultural tendencies in the 1960s
  • The only book-length treatment of RAR in print
