Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism
Vulnerability. The more pages I turned while reading Anne Applebaum’s finely written book titled, Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism, the more I felt vulnerable to trends taking place around the world. As a historian, Applebaum offers historical perspective and insight. As a journalist, she presents an engaging narrative. As a human, she includes her own experience in recent decades as an illustration of the changes she has observed, and the friends lost as a focus on identity led to realignment of alliances. Readers interested in public policy are those most likely to enjoy this captivating book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Twilight of Democracy from amazon.com.
