О тирании
20 уроков ХХ века
Timothy Snyder - 2017-03-28
Рейтинг Goodreads
Есть ли что-то общее между Германией 1933 года и Америкой, избравшей президентом Дональда Трампа? В книге Тимоти Снайдера "О тирании" такое сопоставление не выглядит натяжкой. Автор призывает прислушаться к урокам минувшего века и с их помощью предотвратить скатывание к диктатуре в нынешнем. "Мы не мудрее европейцев, которые видели, как демократия уступает фашизму, нацизму и коммунизму в ХХ веке, — пишет Снайдер. — Наше единственное преимущество в том, что мы можем учиться на их опыте. И сейчас для этого самое время". Тимоти Снайдер — один из ведущих американских историков, широко известный в Европе, о которой написано большинство его работ.
