Resist is a personal handbook for activists seeking to combat extremism and realise social change. The book draws on experience of using peaceful, but determined, resistance to win support for change.

The approaches and tips set out in Resist take account of participation in elections and referenda held in Scotland, Britain and the US in recent years. Topics covered include:

  1. Which methods work and why
  2. Getting started as a personal activist
  3. Keeping yourself and others safe
  4. Tackling extremism
  5. Face-to-face campaigning
  6. Online activism
  7. Building counter narratives
