Reviews

"A brilliant and disturbing analysis, which should be read by anyone wishing to understand the political crisis currently engulfing the world." --Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens "Combining topical reporting with delvings into the history of ideas and some political-philosophical musing in the author's own voice, this relatively short book covers a vast canvas. . . . A roller-coaster world calls for a news editor's skill in processing facts and a philosopher's ability to dissect ideologies. Snyder has both." --The Economist "The Road to Unfreedom offers a brief, potent and carefully documented history of Vladimir Putin's consolidation of power in Russia, Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election." --The Chicago Tribune "Snyder's horror at what has happened in Russia--and at the risks to the US and Europe--gives his writing energy and passion. He is unsparing in his indictment of Putin's Russia. . . .But he is also clear-eyed about the weaknesses of American society that have made the US vulnerable to Russian intervention and domestic populism." --Gideon Rachman, The Financial Times "Essential reading. . . . Chilling and unignorable." --The Guardian "Brilliant. . . . Bleak and eloquent. . . . Snyder's account of the Trump ascendancy, and the many helping hands given from Russia, is vividly and insightfully told." --Edward Lucas, The Times (London) Praise for Timothy Snyder's On Tyranny "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 "A slim book that fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital. . . . Grounded in history yet imbued with the fierce urgency of what now." --Carlos Lozada, The Washington Post "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, author of The Future Is History "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 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." --Daniel W. Drezner, The New York Times Book Review "Snyder draws an unbroken line between the darkest events and personalities of the past and the ones that confront us in the here and now. . . . As he did in On Tyranny, Snyder argues that we are facing a challenge of potentially catastrophic proportions, but he refuses to despair." -Jonathan Kirsch, Jewish Journal
