about this item

Author Michael Croland, creator of the blog heebnvegan, has written about Jews and punk for Forward and New Voices. Here, he probes the reasons why Jews have embraced punk music to express American Jewish identity, outsider identity, Jewish humor, and radicalism, in spite of the presence of anti-Semitic elements in punk culture such as skinheads. Covering the period from the 1970s to the present, the book profiles Jews in punk rock bands, punk bands that sing on themes of Jewishness, and intersections between klezmer and punk. Bands and personalities profiled include Gangsta Rabbi, Moshiach Oi!, Golem, and Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The book also looks at the combination of Jewish and punk culture in films, young adult novels, zines, and radical rabbis. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
