Product Details


“A brilliant and disturbing analysis, which should be read by anyone wishing to understand the political crisis currently engulfing the world.” Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens

“Snyder’s horror at what has happened in Russiaand at the risks to the US and Europegives his writing energy and passion. He is unsparing in his indictment of Putin’s Russia. . . .But he is also clear-eyed about the weaknesses of American society that have made the US vulnerable to Russian intervention and domestic populism. . . . By connecting events in the US to events in Russia, Snyder helpfully places the west’s democratic malaise in a wider international context.” Gideon Rachman, The Financial Times

Praise for Timothy Snyder’s 
On Tyranny

“We are rapidly ripening for fascism. This American writer leaves us with no illusions about ourselves.” —Svetlana Alexievich, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature
“A slim book that fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital. . . . Grounded in history yet imbued with the fierce urgency of what now.” —Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post
“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.” —Masha Gessen, author of The Future Is History
“As Timothy Snyder explains in his fine and frightening On Tyranny, a minority party now has near-total power and is therefore understandably frightened of awakening the actual will of the people.” Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
“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.” Daniel W. Drezner, The New York Times Book Review
