Virulent. Former United States Secretary of State Madeline Albright examines the spread of fascism in the 20th and 21st century and rings an alarm bell for readers in her book titled, Fascism: A Warning. While in many places, democracy beat fascism in the 20th century, a variety of factors have caused a reduction in democracy around the world, allowing elements of fascism to infect politics. Russia and North Korea are prime examples of what Albright describes. While she doesn’t call Trump a fascist, she takes some shots and expresses concerns about some aspects of behavior that should alarm citizens. Readers interested in world affairs are those most likely to appreciate this cogent book.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
