i just got this today. i haven't started reading it yet, and probably won't for a bit, since i'm in the middle of war and peace, as well as school reading, but skimming through it, it looks pretty good.

I definitely want to pick this book up eventually. This is the one with the sociologist taking a sociological look at straight edge right?

yeah, and when i skimmed through it last night, it looks like a pretty interesting breakdown of it all. i gave it to my dad to read because he's interested in stuff like that.

even as someone who has completely taken an axe to my edge, im very interested in reading this. it seems very well catered to those who aren't within the realm of independent music.

i'm particularly interetested in the chapter about postive vs. militism struggle within the scene. this book could very well legitamize straight-edge away from those ridiculous stereotypes that are plaguing me, in particular.
