Jeff Biggers on "Resistance: Reclaiming an American Tradition"


 
Praise for Resistance

“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 of Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance
 
In a riveting and inspiring narrative history, Jeff Biggers’ Resistance reframes today’s battles as a continuum of a vibrant American tradition. Legendary historian Studs Terkel praised Biggers’ The United States of Appalachia, now in its 8th printing, as a “how-to book” in the tradition of the American Revolution. With Resistance, Biggers opens a new window into American history and its meaning today.
