Event description

Description

Before the election of Donald Trump, Timothy Snyder began to issue warnings concerning threats to American democracy. A leading expert in European history, he is well-versed in the events that saw early-twentieth-century Europe yield to fascism, Nazism, and communism. What Snyder has been seeing are patterns and trends here in the U.S. that have caused him great alarm.

In his #1 New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times bestseller, On Tyranny, Snyder offered readers a guide to recognizing and understanding threats to our democratic ideals and offered ways to effectively resist and bring about change. In THE ROAD TO UNFREEDOM, Snyder takes readers further, illuminating moments in our contemporary history in which the tenets of our democracy have been attacked. He shows that our way of life is in imminent danger.

Professor Snyder is the Yale University Levin Professor of History and the author of On Tyranny, Black Earth, and Bloodlands. His work has received the literature award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Hannah Arendt Prize, and the Leipzig Book Prize for European Understanding.
