Review: Soundtracks to the White Revolution: White Supremacist Assaults on Youth Music Subcultures

Soundtracks to the White Revolution: White Supremacist Assaults on Youth Music Subcultures
Devin Burghart, editor

Almost more of a pamphlet than a book, this is an overview of the various genres of neo-fascists / white power music. I grew up in punk rock / underground music scene, and am, unfortunately, deeply familiar with many of the bands and scenes discussed here. Definitely dated now (this one came out in 1999), but still full of valuable information for people who know nothing about this phenomenon. If you come to this one already knowing about Skrewdriver, Boyd Rice, Burzum and Death in June, you’ll probably find this pretty basic. If those names don’t ring a bell, then there’s a lot to learn in this little book.
