    Inhaltsangabe

    A personal and urgent examination of Fascism in the 20th century and how its legacy shapes today’s world, written by one of America’s most admired public servants, the first woman to serve as US secretary of state.

    A Fascist, observes Madeleine Albright, 'is someone who claims to speak for a whole nation or group, is utterly unconcerned with the rights of others, and is willing to use violence and whatever other means are necessary to achieve the goals he or she might have.'

    The 20th century was defined by the clash between democracy and Fascism, a struggle that created uncertainty about the survival of human freedom and left millions of innocent people dead. Given the horrors of that experience, one might expect the world to reject the spiritual successors to Hitler and Mussolini should they arise in our era. In Fascism: A Warning, Madeleine Albright, draws on her own experiences as a child in war-torn Europe and her distinguished career as a diplomat to question that very assumption.

    Fascism, as Albright shows, not only endured through the course of the 20th century but now presents a more virulent threat to international peace and justice than at any time since the end of World War II. The momentum toward democracy that swept the world when the Berlin Wall fell has gone into reverse. The United States, which has historically championed the free world, is led by a president who exacerbates popular divisions and heaps scorn on democratic institutions. In many countries, economic, technological and cultural factors are weakening the political centre and empowering the extremes of right and left. Contemporary leaders such as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are employing many of the same tactics used by Fascists in the 1920s and '30s.

    Fascism: A Warning is an audiobook for our times that is relevant to all times. Written with wisdom by someone who has not only studied history but helped to shape it, this call to arms teaches us the lessons we must understand and the questions we must answer if we are to save ourselves from repeating the tragic errors of the past.

    partly good, part rambling, not well read

    The books by Michelle and Barak Obama were full of insights and solid analysis. They were also really well read. Ms Albright can't match them on content and her arguments are often a bit shakey. Her reading style is like a Grandmother running out of breath - often pausing at the end of a line.

    Descent

    Mainly a (very comprehensive) description of facism without too many new perspectives or insights.
    Some incorrect facts regarding German current politics were somewhat disappointing.

    Well delivered

    Thank you Madame Albright for this intelligent and intelligible analysis of the United States‘ current malaise. I also worry a lot lately. What‘s missing: how does one break up echo chambers (left and right, up and down) to enhance polical discourse and get people to agree on a common set of facts and information?
