(p.1) Introduction
The Resistance

David S. Meyer

Sidney Tarrow

Oxford University Press

Beginning with a review of the first Women’s March, this Introduction details the sudden and strong emergence of a movement in resistance to the presidency of Donald Trump (the Resistance movement). It identifies the new movement as posing three distinct challenges: to scholars of social movements; to the American Left; and to the stability and resilience of American institutions. This Introduction identifies antecedents and foundations of the Trump Resistance, including the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, Black Lives Matter, and immigrants’ rights movements. It situates the Resistance in a historical context. It also places the Resistance in a broader context of protest politics in America.

Keywords:   protest, American institutions, social movements, Left, political parties
