about this item

This volume surveys radical political organizing in the US from the left and right extremes, focusing on movements that promote ideas or practices that challenge the foundations of the existing political or economic system, those that use tactics outside the political mainstream, those that use tactics that may endanger activists' health and safety, or those that violate fundamental social and political norms. It describes the efforts of organized labor and farmer rebellions; socialism, communism, and other anticapitalist movements; anarchists, militias, and other insurgents; Native American and Mexican American resistance to US sovereignty; resistance to slavery, and black nationalism; the Ku Klux Klan, fascism, and ******; movements related to nativism and immigration; movements related to gender and sexuality; peace and antiwar movements; and environmentalism, environmental justice, and animal rights.
