Twilight of Democracy
The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism
Anne Applebaum - 2020-07-21
Goodreads Rating
Explore the resurgence of authoritarianism in the 21st century with Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian Anne Applebaum's Twilight of Democracy. As liberal democracy wanes and populism and nationalism gain traction across the globe, Applebaum offers insight into the appeal of the strongman leader and political systems that prioritize loyalty above all else. Through historical examples and investigative reporting in several countries, she sheds light on the practical motivations that drive individuals toward authoritarianism and highlights the dangers of a one-party state. Discover the seductive power of totalitarian thinking in this thought-provoking and timely book.
