Book - 2017
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Born soon after fascism was invented in the early 20th century, the anti-fascist movement - aka 'antifa' - has a long, fascinating history that is surprisingly little known. As it makes a dramatic and widespread reappearance in Trump's America, this book is both a riveting history, and an accessible guide to methods used over the years to fight repressive demagogism.

Mark Bray's book is a good introduction about what Anti-fascism actually is, and why it is becoming so important in our contemporary context. Interesting primary source materials and interviews with Antifascists from America and Europe. Solid historical criticisms as well of what Antifascist movements did right and what they did wrong in the past. The chapter on Free Speech also has some solid criticisms of the way the alt-right exploits this concept.

Heard a radio show program on Antifa by a member and lecturer at Dartmouth [immediately, I am becoming more suspicious] a short time ago on KEXP's Mind Over Matters show [Saturday and Sunday mornings from 6:00 am to 9:00 am]. The Dartmouth lecturer explained that it is pronounced AHHN-tifas, which surprised me since once would presume to pronounce anti as anti?!?!?! [The Dartmouth lecturer said he was highly annoyed at it constantly being mispronounced - - thank goodness he gets upset over monumental events!!]
Was not impressed with his lecture. Am not impressed by repeated attacks by antifas on police at those marches to insure civil behavior. Am also not impressed by rather revisionistic history of those supposedly // antifascist \\ organizations. Certainly first I have heard of them, and I've read a bit of history over the years. They obviously did not do a very good job of it, as they failed miserably, assuming this sudden historical narrative is accurate, which I've yet to see proven?!?!? [I always repeat the well-known refrain, Follow the money! Who is financing them, and who or what is financing any white supremacy groups?]
