Produktbeschreibung

#1ÿNew York TimesÿBestseller ÿA historian of fascism offers a guide for surviving and resisting America's turn towards authoritarianism.

The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike the totalitarianism of the twentieth century. We are no wiser than the Europeans who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism. Our one advantage is that we might learn from their experience.

On Tyrannyÿis a call to arms and a guide to resistance, with invaluable ideas for how we can preserve our freedoms in the uncertain years to come.

"Mr. Snyder is a rising public intellectual unafraid to make bold connections between past and present." The New York Times 

Kritik

A Washington Post Notable Bookÿ

"We are rapidly ripening for fascism. This American writer leaves us with no illusions about ourselves."ÿ Svetlana Alexievich, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

"Timothy Snyder reasons with unparalleled clarity, throwing the past and future into sharp relief. He has written the rare kind of book that can be read in one sitting but will keep you coming back to help regain your bearings. Put a copy in your pocket and one on your bedside table, and it will help you keep going for the next four years or however long it takes." Masha Gessen

"Please read this book. So smart, so timely."ÿ George Saunders

Easily the most compelling volume among the early resistance literature. . . . A slim book that fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital. . . . Clarifying and unnerving. . . . A memorable work that is grounded in history yet imbued with the fierce urgency of what now. ÿ Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post
ÿ
Snyder knows this subject cold. . . . It is impossible to read aphorisms like post-truth is pre-fascism and not feel a small chill about the current state of the Republic. . . . Approach this short book the same you would a medical pamphlet warning about an infectious disease. Read it carefully and be on the lookout for symptoms. Daniel W. Drezner,ÿThe New York Times Book Review

"As Timothy Snyder explains in his fine and frightening On Tyranny, a minorityÿparty now has near-total power and is therefore understandably frightened of awakening the actual will of the people."ÿ Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker

Snyder is superbly positioned to bring historical thinking to bear on the current political scene. . . . These unpretentious words remind us that political resistance isn t a matter of action-movie heroics, but starts from a willingness to break from social expectations. Jeet Heer,ÿThe New Republic

The perfect clear-eyed antidote to Trump s deliberate philistinism. . . . These 128 pages are a brief primer in every important thing we might have learned from the history of the last century, and all that we appear to have forgotten. Tim Adams, The Guardian

On Tyranny demands to be read. The Forward

The manifesto we need. . . . Snyder detects dangerous trends in American politics that may be less visible to most citizens who cannot believe that our country, with its system of checks and balances, could succumb to illiberalism or authoritarianism. Darryl Holter, Los Angeles Review of Books

Bracing. . . . On Tyranny is a call to action. . . . A brisk read packed with lucid prose. Voxÿ
