We’re Not Here to Entertain: Punk Rock, Ronald Reagan, and the Real Culture War of 1980s America“- Hardcover Book

By Kevin Mattson

History professor Kevin Mattson (who co-founded the DC activist group Positive Force) documents the “punk rock world” of 1980s America, and putting this movement into a wider context, telling about a culture war that punks opened up – with straight edge, anarchism, DIY, and dissent – against the establishment and its sitting president.
“As a punk, it’s exciting to read Entertain and see how the groundwork was laid for the music and politics that saved my ass over a decade later” – Razorcake
