About and Chapter Drafts

American Resistance is a book in progress by Dana R. Fisher, Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland.  Sections of the book will go live here first beginning in Fall 2017.  See this schedule for what to expect on the site. The full book will be published by Columbia University Press after the 2018 Mid-Term elections.
