Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a powerful compilation of 16 essays examining various groups within the Appalachian region who fought for change in their communities. The essays provide an historical overview of events and strategies arising from citizen resistance to human and environmental exploitation. Frequently portrayed as passive victims, the people of the Appalachian Mountains emerge from this study as courageous activists. Many of the contributors to this volume were participants in the organizations they describe, providing first-hand accounts of the groups' efforts. Extensive footnotes and a bibliography make this a valuable contribution to the literature of social activism. For academic and regional collections.

Format: Paperback
Fisher presents a wonderful array of perspectives on grassroots resistance to unwelcome change in the Appalachian region. The authors in this volume portray social struggles for justice is several contexts: dealing with class and labor rights, environmental justice, health and industrial development, and gender/ethnic identity. Weaving together first person narratives of resistance, scholarly accounts of political economy, and sensitive consideration of contemporary theoretical concepts, Fighting Back in Appalachia is a wonderful introduction into the political activism of Appalachia, and more generally, a great portrait of alternative democratic ideals at work on the American landscape. I highly recommed this book for its content and readability.

Format: Kindle Edition
Interesting material but boring due to constant repetition. Read 2 or 3 chapters then skip to last one.
