Product description

Review

Combining scholarship with the knowledge that can only come from political experience this is a moving memorial to the late author and those who have fought fascism in Britain for almost a hundred years. Detailed accounts, eye witness testimony and a non-sectarian approach make this an engaging and fascinating account that should be read by activists and historians of all kinds. --Dr Hilda Kean

About the Author

Dave Hann was an anti-fascist activist and self-taught historian. He worked as a plasterer and builder for most of his life. He died in 2009, aged 48.

The following review appears on the Anti-Fascist Archive [...] and are the thoughts of the archivist regarding Physical Resistance and a reply to Dave Renton's review [...]. The Archivist asked me to repost here on Amazon.

----

Unfortunately I am thousands of miles from my copies of Beating the Fascists, No Retreat and Anti-Fascism in Britain which I think would be extremely useful in a full and detailed review of Physical Resistance. I am having to make do with my computerised notes of Beating the Fascists, sadly I chose only to word process my notes after reading No Retreat and Anti-Fascism in Britain. Following reading Dave Renton's review of Physical Resistance I decided to write down a few of my thoughts of the book and his review. My focus will be on the latter chapters as this is the period where I have mostly researched. I welcome any response and correction.

Physical Resistance: A Hundred Years of Anti-Fascism has given those interested in the study of in militant anti-fascism a wealth of important and interesting events which have laid undiscovered, exciting long oral accounts of former activists and a number of questions to attempt to answer. These long oral and written accounts are woven with Hann's narrative. Sadly Dave Hann died before he could finish his work but his long term partner, who also writes the introduction, has stepped in and finished the book well with the circumstance. However, as Renton points out there are points in the book which are under-analysed and leave the reader asking for more detail.

Firstly, Renton's review; I believe it contained a number of factual errors.

This is an excellent book , covering the entire history , from the 1920's till today, of (UK) anti fascist physical resistance activity, via a host of exciting, amusing, and inspiring "oral history style" recollections from anti fascist activists from a wide range of (Left spectrum) political parties and viewpoints. This is very much a book (or Kindle) for the committed anti fascist/anti racist - any fascists reading it may well suffer severe carpet-chewing psychosis, and in its acceptance of the necessity for direct action violence as part of the "action mix" to oppose the growth of fascism, it may well cause palpitations with liberals and NuLabourites too ! An excellent, evocative, informative, and inspiring book. Buy it !
