—The Washington Post

Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent greater than 20 years learning the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin the United States, and so they think the answer's convinced. Democracy not ends with a bang—in a revolution or army coup—but with a whimper: the sluggish, regular weakening of serious associations, resembling the judiciary and the clicking, and the sluggish erosion of long-standing political norms. the good news is that there are numerous go out ramps at the highway to authoritarianism. The undesirable information is that, by means of electing Trump, we now have already handed the 1st one.
Drawing on many years of study and a variety of old and international examples, from Thirties Europe to modern Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the yankee South in the course of Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt exhibit how democracies die—and how ours could be saved.
