Book Review: Up Against It

SMALL ACTS OF RESISTANCE by Steve Crawshaw and John Jackson (Sterling)

| November-December 2010

Celebrating Valentine’s Day, using the Internet, and singing folk songs can all be subversive deeds, according to Small Acts of Resistance, which tells the stories of people around the world who have stood up against injustice and oppression by doing little things that carry large symbolic weight. A compendium of ordinary heroes who are brave, compassionate, committed, or just plain stubborn, the book is a morale-boosting read for anyone whose social conscience is clouded by dark daily headlines.
