About and Chapter Drafts

American Resistance is a book in progress by Dana R. Fisher, Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland.  Draft sections of the book went live here beginning in Fall 2017.  See this schedule for what to expect on the site. The full book is in press at Columbia University Press and will be out in mid-2019.

Thanks to my colleague and friend Philip Cohen for use of his beautiful photos!
