What's the relationship between combating the far right and
working for systemic change? What does it mean when fascists intensify
racial oppression and patriarchy but also call for the downfall of
economic elites or even take up arms against the state?

Three way fight politics confront these urgent questions squarely, arguing
that the far right grows out of an oppressive capitalist order but is
also in conflict with it in real ways, and that radicals need to combat
both. The three way fight approach says we need sharper analysis of
far-right movements so we can fight them more effectively, and we also
need to track ongoing developments within the ruling class, including
liberal or centrist efforts to co-opt antifascism as a tool of state
repression and system legitimation.

elsewhere, spanning from the antifascist struggles of the 1980s and
1990s to the political upheavals of the twenty-first century. Over
fifteen authors explore a range of topics, such as fascist politics'
relationship with patriarchy and settler colonialism, Tom Metzger's
"Third Position" (anticapitalist) fascism, conflict within the business
community over the 2016 presidential election, and the Trump
administration's shifting relationship with the organized far right.

tensions between radicals and liberals within the reproductive rights
movement and the George Floyd rebellion, video gaming as an arena of
political struggle, and the importance (and challenges) of approaching
antifascist organizing in ways that are militant, community based, and
