"These powerful, urgent essays remind us that everywhere there is resistance there is hope." --Jeff Chang, author of We Gon' Be Alright

With Resistance, Jeff Biggers opens a new window into American history and its meaning today. In a recovery of unsung heroes, including revolutionary forefather Thomas Paine, Resistance is a provocative reconsideration of the American Revolution, bringing alive early Native American, African American, and immigrant struggles, women's rights, and environmental justice movements. Biggers unfolds one of our country's best-kept secrets: in dealing with the most challenging issues of every generation, resistance to duplicitous civil authority has defined our quintessential American story.
