Ever since 2017’s tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia, people of good will have been looking for effective ways to reduce the threat to our democracy of growing groups of right-wing extremists.  George Lakey brings good news: practical ways for grassroots people to deal with and reduce the effectiveness of such groups as white supremacists and fascists.

An activist/sociologist, Lakey has six decades of personal experience to draw on as well as research into other “best practices” that have worked in other countries and situations. He explains how to analyze the intentions of such groups, what behaviors reward them and frustrate them, how their growth is related to the larger polarization in society, and how to reduce the dynamics that feed them.
