Fighting Fascism and the Far Right

Even as Donald Trump prepares to leave office, the forces that put him there have not yet dissipated, as the storming of Capitol Hill by a militant coalition of revanchist small business owners, street-fighting neo-fascists, and Qanon cultists made clear earlier this month.

Through on-the-ground reporting, archival research, and critical analysis, Brendan O'Connor's Blood Red Lines: How Nativism Fuels the Right unearths the history of this social formation, tracks its transformation during the Trump years, and charts its future.
