About the Author

Shane Burley: Shane Burley is a writer and filmmaker based in Portland, Oregon. He has written for In These Times, Columbia Journalism Review, ThinkProgress, Waging Nonviolence, Roar Magazine, and Make/Shift, and has been interviewed on the topic of fascism by The Guardian, the Huffington Post, among others.


"No better volume exists to understand the nexus of alt-right bigotry and anti-fascist resistance in the United States than Fascism Today. Burley's work is an essential 'tool for opposition' that brings to bear years of in-depth research and investigation into the resurgence of the far right. To destroy fascism, we must first understand it--that understanding starts here."--Mark Bray, historian and author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook

"Fascism Today clearly and accessibly contextualizes the current moment in the United States, as well as the varied tactics to combat it." --Portland Mercury

"Burley leaves no stone unturned in this vigorous and indispensable guide to modern fascism and the interlocking movements that oppose it, issuing a clarion call for ethical, intersectional resistance." --Alexander Reid Ross, author of Against the Fascist Creep

"Shane Burley was one of the first people to recognize the influence of the Alt Right and closely track its political development and intellectual approach. I highly recommend Fascism Today as both an accessible and comprehensive account of the Alt Right and related white nationalist groups--as well as their antifascist opposition."--Spencer Sunshine, author of Up in Arms: A Guide to Oregon's Patriot Movement

"Burley's work gives us the most thorough dissection of the different tendencies of the modern far-right in clear, jargon-free language. If there are any three anti-fascist books that must be on every activist's bookshelf, this is one of them." --Truthout
