Editorial Reviews

Review

A Washington Post Notable Book

“We are rapidly ripening for fascism. This American writer leaves us with no illusions about ourselves.”
—Svetlana Alexievich, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

“Timothy Snyder reasons with unparalleled clarity, throwing the past and future into sharp relief. He has written the rare kind of book that can be read in one sitting but will keep you coming back to help regain your bearings.”
—Masha Gessen

“Please read this book. So smart, so timely.”—George Saunders

“Easily the most compelling volume among the early resistance literature. . . . A slim book that fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital. . . . Clarifying and unnerving. . . . A memorable work that is grounded in history yet imbued with the fierce urgency of what now.”
—Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post
 
“Snyder knows this subject cold. . . . It is impossible to read aphorisms like ‘post-truth is pre-fascism’ and not feel a small chill about the current state of the Republic. . . . Approach this short book the same you would a medical pamphlet warning about an infectious disease. Read it carefully and be on the lookout for symptoms.”—Daniel W. Drezner, The New York Times Book Review

“As Timothy Snyder explains in his fine and frightening
On Tyranny, a minority party now has near-total power and is therefore understandably frightened of awakening the actual will of the people.”—Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker

“Snyder is superbly positioned to bring historical thinking to bear on the current political scene. . . . These unpretentious words remind us that political resistance isn’t a matter of action-movie heroics, but starts from a willingness to break from social expectations.” —
Jeet Heer, The New Republic

“The perfect clear-eyed antidote to Trump’s deliberate philistinism. . . . These 128 pages are a brief primer in every important thing we might have learned from the history of the last century, and all that we appear to have forgotten.”
—Tim Adams, The Guardian

On Tyranny demands to be read.”The Forward

“The manifesto we need. . . . Snyder detects dangerous trends in American politics that may be less visible to most citizens who cannot believe that our country, with its system of checks and balances, could succumb to illiberalism or authoritarianism.”—Darryl Holter, Los Angeles Review of Books

“Bracing . . .
On Tyranny is a call to action. . . . A brisk read packed with lucid prose.”Vox

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read in the current times we are living in
Reviewed in the United States on June 19, 2017
This book is a must read for anyone that has any interest in learning from the mistakes that horrible tyrants made in the past and demanding of our representatives that the same mistakes don't repeat the politics of past times laid out in this book. I had reservations when I first started reading it. I was afraid the author had an agenda and was trying to get me, the reader, to see things through his lens. By five pages in I realized this was not the case. The mark of a truly non partisan history book is to finish the book and have no clue what political party the author identifies with. That was the case when I finished this. And that is as it should be. The book is expertly written by an author with an obvious extensive knowledge on the subject matter and I had it read in one night. It was such a page turner that I couldn't put it down. I had 2 different judges (a family law and a criminal judge) recommend it to me and now my whole office has read it. I hope everyone that cares about learning about and not repeating history's mistakes will read this book.
