On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder

#1 New York Times Bestseller

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.

Editorial Reviews

Unlike public intellectuals who casually toss around the word "fascist" to describe a disappointing restaurant salad, Snyder knows this subject cold. He is a Yale University historian who has written at length on fascism, Communism and the Holocaust…For such a small book, Snyder invests On Tyranny with considerable heft…Approach this…book the same way you would a medical pamphlet warning about an infectious disease. Read it carefully and be on the lookout for symptoms.
