THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED FOLLOW-UP TO INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER HOW DEMOCRACIES DIE essential reading ahead of the 2024 US election Just like their previous work, this book is concise, readable, and convincing Anne Applebaum, author of Twilight of Democracy ------------------------------------- How has democracy become so threatened and what can we do to save it? With the clarity and brilliance that made their first book, How Democracies Die, a global bestseller, leading Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt offer a coherent new framework for understanding the dangerous times we live in. They draw on a wealth of examples from the Capitol riots, to Edwardian Britain, from 1930s France to present-day Thailand to explain why political parties turn against democracy, and how to see when this will happen. In this razor-sharp analysis, Levitsky and Ziblatt offer in particular an urgent warning about right-wing efforts to undermine the very foundations of the American political system. Multiracial democracy is something few societies have ever achieved but even the prospect of this change can spark an authoritarian backlash whose dangerous effects will resonate long into the future. Donald Trumps astonishing lead in the run-up to the Republican nomination, even after his indictment and imprisonment on charges of election interference, is evidence of that. With its attention on factors from election losses to demographic change and voting rights, its urgent call for a reform of our politics to balance the need for majority rule with the need for minority protections, and a citizens movement to put enough pressure on lawmakers to act before its too late, Tyranny of the Minority is a must-read for everyone keen to see more vibrant democracy and to understand where future threats may come from. ------------------------------------- Provocative and readable David Runciman on How Democracies Die 'A useful primer on the importance of norms, institutional restraints and civic participation in maintaining a democracy' Barack Obama on How Democracies Die
