Resist: Goals and Tactics for Changemakers is an extensive work of non-fiction in the field of government, politics, and activism, penned by author Gayle Kimball. Written from a progressive and democratic perspective, this comprehensive guidebook promotes positive change through ten extensive chapters. The format allows the author to produce real solutions to complex problems, often addressing the criticism that democrats have ‘no real plan’ of how to effect change. More than this, the work extends to real examples of powerful activists who are already making the kinds of social changes that the book calls for, as well as ideas on communication, encouraging youth generations into activism and more.

Dr. Gayle Kimball has produced a superb and extensive reference work which gives both hope and education to progressive thinkers and those who want to effect change against the current state of affairs in many countries of the modern world. For those not fully up on their politics, the guide offers a good grounding in global issues and spotting authoritarianism in its many forms, as well as many practical examples of how revolutionary change can and is being achieved worldwide. The Changemakers of the title include those who have historically never been given the chance or choice to make changes, creating inspirational examples, but also realistic plans as to how we as people can become changemakers ourselves. Overall, Resist: Goals and Tactics for Changemakers provides a powerful and effective manifesto and advocacy for the much-needed changes our current society and government systems require.
