Resisting The State

Oorspronkelijke prijs was: €23.95.Huidige prijs is: €5.20.

Grassroots history of Canada through the accounts of a wide range of radical political movements: anti-racism, -sexism and -poverty; indigenous people’s movements, immigrants and refugees. The freedoms and liberties that every community, workplace and individual in Canada enjoys are due to the many struggles and social movements in our country’s history. Yet the stories, accounts and histories of the movements to overcome racism, sexism and poverty, for example, remain largely untold, thanks to the single, simplistic national story taught to the masses in school. Deftly combining history with accounts from activists and participants in social movements, two new books from Scott Neigh introduce us to the untold histories of two crucial issues in contemporary Canadian society that challenge all of us to engage in the struggles that will shape our shared tomorrow. In ‘Resisting the State’, Neigh draws attention to the broad range of struggles against the Canadian state, detailing the histories of these movements and providing readers with a richer understanding of the Canadian state and why so many people – including military draftees, welfare recipients, workers, Indigenous people, psychiatric survivors, immigrants and refugees – have struggled against the Canadian state and continue to do so.
