"Resist we must, resist we will--and as this volume powerfully reminds us, in so doing we are acting on the deepest American instincts." --Bill McKibben, author ofRadio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance Across cities, towns, and campuses, Americans are grappling with overwhelming challenges and the daily fallout from the most authoritarian White House policies in recent memory. In an inspiring narrative history, Jeff Biggers reframes today's battles as a continuum of a vibrant American tradition.Resistance is a chronicle of the courageous resistance movements that have insured the benchmarks of our democracy--movements that served on the front lines of the American Revolution, the defense of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the defeat of fascism during World War II, and landmark civil rights and environmental protection achievements. Legendary historian Studs Terkel praised Biggers'sThe United States of Appalachia as a "how-to book" in the tradition of the American Revolution. WithResistance, Biggers opens a new window into American history and its meaning today. In a recovery of unsung heroes, including Revolutionary forefather Thomas Paine, Resistance is a provocative reconsideration of the American Revolution, bringing alive early Native American, African American, and immigrant struggles, women's rights, and environmental justice movements. With lucidity, meticulousness, and wit, Biggers unfolds one of our country's best-kept secrets: in dealing with the most challenging issues of every generation, resistance to duplicitous civil authority has defined our quintessential American story.
