Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


Zine history dates back to the mimeographed chapbooks produced by the Beat Generation in the early fifties, political pamphlets passed out by rabblerousers in the sixties, and fan-zines created by punk rockers and rock-and-roll fans in the seventies and eighties. Zines experienced an explosion of popularity in the mid-nineties, with everyone from sixteen-year-old suburban girls to fifty-year-old political prisoners sounding off about their obsessions and struggles. Breaking down state and international barriers, as well as the confines of race, class and gender, Zinedom has become a full-fledged community. With absolute editorial freedom, zine publishers express their knowledge, experience, political perspectives, and talent in their own uninhibited styles. The result is a thriving underground movement based on personal empowerment and fueled by an outspoken group of writers and thinkers who vigilantly challenge corporate control of the mainstream media.
