About the Book

Journalist Patrick Strickland provides on-the-ground profiles of the unique characters involved in anti-fascist struggles in various countries across Europe. The left and its anti-authoritarian variants were fighting far-right populism and neo-Nazis long before the mainstream media became aware of such groups. Stickland bases his profiles in their historical context, explaining the roots and gains of the far-right, as well as the history of anti-fascist efforts and how they inform today’s struggles.

Each profile, ranging from a 71-year-old grandmother armed with cans of spray paint to street-fighting youth, provides a window into the broader anti-fascist movement in each country, highlighting the creative tactics diverse individuals employ to fight hatred and white supremacy in their communities.

About the Book

Meet Europe's anti-fascists, from grandparents to street-fighters. A fascinating tour led by compelling characters.
