Cultural Resistance: A Reader, presents a historical look at the ways in which human cultures have been used and inspired by resistance to oppression. From the English Levellers of the 1600s, to the the 19th century marxists and anarchists, to the feminists and Black power activists of the 20th century, this work explores culture as a weapon through varied and interesting essays. In these pages we hear from such notables as Theodor Adorno, Virginia Woolf, Mikhail Bakhtin, Stuart Hall, Bertolt Brecht, Janice Radway, Abbie Hoffman, and Mahatma Gandhi. We glimpse into how the realms of art, music, and philosophy have helped define resistance. And, importantly, we are presented with examples of how to use and build cultures which create a more just, free, world.
