How antifascism is as American as apple pie

Since the birth of fascism in the 1920s, well before the global renaissance of ?white nationalism, ? the United States has been home to its own distinct fascist movements, some of which decisively influenced the course of US history. Yet long before Antifa became a household word in the United States, they were met, time and again, by an equally deep antifascist current. Many on the left are unaware that the United States has a rich antifascist tradition, because it has rarely been discussed as such, nor has it been accessible in one place. This reader reconstructs the history of US antifascism the twenty-first century, showing how generations of writers, organisers, and fighters spoke to each other over time.


"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."
--Midwest Book Review
