This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book explores some of the different ways in which punk has been understood, adopted and utilised since it first established itself in the cultural consciousness from the mid-1970s. It also explores the contemporary punk scene in Russia, concentrating on the nexus between violence, masculinity and subcultural affinity. The book looks at punk's relationship to locality and space, and concentrates on communication and reception. It examines the transgressive concept of 'immigrant punk' to present bands such as Kultur Shock as both reflecting and resisting the processes of postmodernity. The book also examines the representation of punk in film, exploring the diverse forms of 'punk cinema' forged since the 1970s. It explains academic and non-academic interest in the politics of a cultural form that continues to reverberate across the world.
