About the book:

Collective youth up trees or down tunnels, protest camps and all-night raves across the landthese are the spectacular features of the politics and culture of nineties youth in Britain. DiY Culture lays to rest the myth of Thatchers children, for the flags are flying againgreen, red and black.

Editor George McKay claims that popular protest today is characterized by a culture of immediacy and direct action. Gathered together here for the first time is a collection of in-depth and reflective pieces by activists and other key figures in DiY culture, telling their own stories and histories. From the environmentalist to the video activist, the raver to the road protester, the neo-pagan to the anarcho-capitalist, the authors demonstrate how the counterculture of the nineties offers a vibrant, provocative and positive alternative to institutionalized unemployment and the restricted freedoms and legislated pleasures of UK plc.
