Michael Seidman teaches at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, having studied at the University of Amsterdam, University of California, Berkeley and Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania. His first book, Workers against Work: Labor in Barcelona and Paris during the Popular Fronts, 1936–38 (1991) has been translated into six languages. Other publications include Republic of Egos: A Social History of the Spanish Civil War (2002, Spanish translation, 2003); The Imaginary Revolution: Parisian Students and Workers in 1968 (2004); and The Victorious Counterrevolution: The Nationalist Effort in the Spanish Civil War (2011, Spanish translation, 2012).
'Michael Seidman makes a powerful case for giving antifascism the analytical attention scholars have long given to fascism. His erudite and lively study of Spain, France, Britain, and the US does that and more. It breaks open the subject with fresh, provocative ideas, and it explores the many dimensions of antifascism - its politics, its religious and cultural wellsprings, its place in working-class life - with deft authority. A remarkable contribution.' Herrick Chapman, New York University
