    Many Americans are feeling frustrated and bewildered by the actions of the current administration. Our country is being wrested away from us, our values are being undermined and our fellow human beings are receiving unfair and inhumane treatment. What can the average citizen do? Instead of wringing one’s hands in despair you can turn to Roadmap for Revolutionaries: Resistance, Activism, and Advocacy for All. This handbook is a collaboration of three writers Elisa Camahort Page, Carolyn Gerin and Many Americans are feeling frustrated and bewildered by the actions of the current administration. Our country is being wrested away from us, our values are being undermined and our fellow human beings are receiving unfair and inhumane treatment. What can the average citizen do? Instead of wringing one’s hands in despair you can turn to Roadmap for Revolutionaries: Resistance, Activism, and Advocacy for All. This handbook is a collaboration of three writers Elisa Camahort Page, Carolyn Gerin and Jamia Wilson, each brings her expertise to the subject at hand. The authors tackle different topics and divide the book into five key sections: Protests and Civil Disobedience, Protecting Yourself Online and Off, Economic Pressure, Getting Into (and Out of) Government, and Reform School: Reforming Other Institutions in Our Lives. Each section supplies practical information including definitions of key terms, takeaways and resources, and detailed instructions for engagement. The best part is that each chapter has first-hand accounts of people who participated in activities as varied as protesting at Standing Rock or running for the local school boards. Roadmap is beautifully designed and has a very inviting layout. There are concise infographics and callout boxes that underscore key points. I read a pdf of the book and look forward to getting a physical copy of the book. I found Roadmap for Revolutionaries to be extremely accessible and informative. There are many forms that resistance can take from the simple economic boycotts and buycotts, to running for local office and participating in protests. This book gives you a step-by-step guide to how you can take action and what to expect when you get involved.

    Vive la revolution. Road Map for Revolutionaries is a go-to guide for anyone trying to effect change, offering pragmatic advice and resources that will help you whether you are trying to decide whether to run for office or start a movement for social change, or simply change a policy at work or inequities in the high school dress code. It is particularly relevant now. The examples come straight from the front lines. In future years, should we be so lucky to have them, the book will be a time cap Vive la revolution. Road Map for Revolutionaries is a go-to guide for anyone trying to effect change, offering pragmatic advice and resources that will help you whether you are trying to decide whether to run for office or start a movement for social change, or simply change a policy at work or inequities in the high school dress code. It is particularly relevant now. The examples come straight from the front lines. In future years, should we be so lucky to have them, the book will be a time capsule of what we are fighting for today — racial, religious and gender equality, climate change, social justice, reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, universal health care. But the advice is truly for the ages. That is the mark of a good “how-to” book, that its advice transcends the examples, and offers guidance that stands the test of time. My only complaint, as a pre-release reviewer, is that I read a PDF version on my Kindle so could not easily mark my favorite passages. Of course, the upside is, I get to read it all over again.

    Road Map should be on the syallabus in every middle, high school, and college civics/American History class. This book takes the energy and idealism of activism, and channels it into approachable doable action steps-- all in an appealing design with bite-sized chapters. Thank you to Page, Gerin, Wilson and all the contributors for this empowering and inviting guide.

In the age of information overwhelm, I love that the authors remind us that "Whatever time you have to engage is enough to make a difference" and then go on to provide practical information helping each of us determine what areas or institutions we may want to get involved in - whether to start or broaden our efforts to make a difference in the communities around us - and, just as importantly, how exactly to do that. Road Map manages to provide everything from lessons on government, historical movements, current events, media literacy skills, online privacy concerns, and other personal protection considerations to stories told by past and present activists in a way that is actually helpful, informative, and inspiring. Checklists and infographics throughout the book make it even easier to digest and quicker to revisit, freeing up more time to activate more efficiently and effect the changes you feel fired up about making in your community.

Awesome read!

    This book is an engaging, insightful read! A lot of us who consider ourselves to be part of the #Resistance feel well-educated, but this book really fills in the gaps that we might not be aware of. It’s so nice to have things that I was already familiar with (the organizational structure of the US gov) laid out clearly and concisely. I’m impressed by how much it manages to cover without feeling dense and overwhelming - the graphics are useful and the layout makes it peppy and a quick read - but This book is an engaging, insightful read!

I’m impressed by how much it manages to cover without feeling dense and overwhelming - the graphics are useful and the layout makes it peppy and a quick read - but still manages to delve thoughtfully into topics as complex as privilege or the Electoral College. I liked the upbeat textbook feel of the sections that explained common terms and ideas, intermixed with personal stories and how-to sections (and moments of humor like an eggplant emoji denoting “obscene speech” LOL). I’ve read books that are purely historical and books that are purely instructive, but this was a delightful balance of both that will impact a lot of the actions I take in the coming months and years.

    What I loved about "Road Map for Revolutionaries" is that whatever your resistance/activism/advocacy profile may be, you'll find facts, resources, strategies and inspiration that speak to your comfort level. By the end of the book, you'll have many ideas about what you can do to be proactive in your community, protest an issue that matters to you, or lead the charge to right an injustice. What you won't have is any excuse to do nothing.

    Some helpful info, but the book tries too hard to be all things to all people and feels scattered as a result. Needs more copyediting.
