Product Details


“Serious about destroying fascism? Study the US Antifascism Reader.”
—Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook

“This is a crucial reader for our current political moment. It is a massive and rich archive, historicizing, theorizing, querying, and interrogating fascism in its many US varieties. This reader unearths and connects the anti-fascist responses in a plethora of sites—the Black Panthers and other anti-racist movements, LGBT pink triangle activists, and the Antifa. It will give you the knowledge to embolden yourself to resist and revolt.”
—Zillah Eisenstein, Anti-Racist Feminist Activist, Ithaca College

“Mullen and Vials cover an extraordinary range of sources—political, literary, sociological—from the fascists themselves, via liberal and business commentators, to the most committed of fascism’s opponents. This book is a treasure trove for anyone who wants to understand the tradition in which today’s antifascists stand.”
—David Renton, author of The New Authoritarians: Convergence on the Right

“In a remarkable feat of archival excavation, Bill Mullen and Christopher Vials have prepared a carefully compiled dossier to address fascism in the US in new and original ways. The result is a varied and vital collection—historically engaging and pressingly relevant—that tracks the arc of fascism and radical responses. The US Antifascism Reader brings the true stakes of this topic into focus. It’s a book I urge scholars and activists to obtain at once!”
—Alan Wald, University of Michigan

“This volume should be read by everyone who thinks they know what fascism is, and everyone who does not, for it provides a rich and indispensable set of materials to give depth and meaning to the word ‘fascism,’ precisely when we need a comprehensive and varied archive to inform anti-fascist struggles. If you want to know what fascism has been and can be, read this book. We ignore it at our peril.”
—David Palumbo-Liu, Stanford University

“Exceptionally well organized and presented.”
