#1 New York Times Bestseller • A historian of fascism offers a guide for surviving and resisting America's turn towards authoritarianism. 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. On Tyranny is a call to arms and a guide to resistance, with invaluable ideas for how we can preserve our freedoms in the uncertain years to come. "Mr. Snyder is a rising public intellectual unafraid to make bold connections between past and present." —The New York Times

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“‘Stand out.’ ‘Believe in truth.’ ‘Be calm when the unthinkable arrives.’ A historian offers a set of twenty prescriptions for how to live under a dictatorship…Snyder carefully weighs his rules for radicals against historical benchmarks…Those committed to resistance will want to study up on them…Timely and essential, if, one hopes, a bit more than the present situation requires.” Kirkus Reviews
