Solidarity: Hidden Histories And Geographies Of Internationalism

Despite the frequency with which the word ‘solidarity’ is invoked the concept itself has rarely been subjected to close scrutiny. In this original and stereotype-busting work, David Featherstone helps redress this imbalance through an innovative combination of archival research, activist testimonies and first-hand involvement with political movements. —– Solidarity presents a variety of case studies, from anti-slavery and anti-fascist organizing to climate change activism and the boycotts of Coca-Cola. It unearths international forms of solidarity that are all too often marginalized by nation-centred histories of the left and social movements. —– Timely and wide-ranging, Solidarity is a fascinating investigation of an increasingly vital subject.
