    Penguin presents the audiobook edition of How Democracies Die by Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, read by Fred Sanders.

    Two Harvard professors explain the dangerous world we face today. Democracies can die with a coup d'état - or they can die slowly. This happens most deceptively when in piecemeal fashion, with the election of an authoritarian leader, the abuse of governmental power and the complete repression of opposition. All three steps are being taken around the world - not least with the election of Donald Trump - and we must all understand how we can stop them.

    In How Democracies Die, Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt draw insightful lessons from across history - from the rule of General Augusto Pinochet in Chile to the quiet undermining of Turkey's constitutional system by President Recip Erdogan - to shine a light on regime breakdown across the 20th and 21st centuries. Notably they point to the dangers of an authoritarian leader faced with a major crisis.

    Based on years of research, they present a deep understanding of how and why democracies die; an alarming analysis of how democracy is being subverted today in the US and beyond; and a guide for maintaining and repairing a threatened democracy, for governments, political parties and individuals. History doesn't repeat itself. But we can protect our democracy by learning its lessons before it's too late.

    How American democracy might fail.

    Focuses quite a bit on the American history, political landscape and future. That's interesting too. But title and description of the book led me to expect a more general approach.

    Demokratie keine Selbstverständlichkeit

    Interessant, spannend und ausgewogen! Nach dem Ende des Buches wird einem noch mal klar, was für ein schützenwertes Gut Demokratie ist - und keine Selbstverständlichkeit!

    Handwerklich gut, aber nicht brillant

    Bietet einen sehr guten Überblick über die politische Situation in den USA. Wer sich allerdings sowieso viel mit den USA beschäftigt, wird über viele Dinge, die im Buch besprochen werden, schon Bescheid wissen.

    Kein absoluter Augenöffner, aber dennoch interessant.

    Very insightful

    This book was very insightful and I hope it can be a wake-up call to people all over the world. Standing up for democratic norms is what keeps democracies alive.

    great analysis

    this is a clear and well described analysis of the potential that democracies slip into authorisation states. Donald Trump is used as an example and the authors show hour dangerous new is for American democracy. however, the presented test for authoritarian politicians fits Germany's Gaulaud perfectly, so Germany beware!
