Reviews

`Cooly analyses the way countries can descend into tyranny' Economist, Book of the Year

`A wise book ... such satisfaction that it brings comes from spending time in the company of a sage and admirable person' The Times

`A passionate cri de coeur ... `Fascism' is a salutary warning written with passion and the ink-blood of personal experience' Daily Telegraph

`If Mrs Albright's learning is to be expected, her way with words is a happy surprise, as is her wisdom about human nature. Free of geopolitical jargon, her deceptively simple prose is sprinkled with shrewd observations about the emotions that underpin bad or wicked political decisions ... Bookshops are full of expert guides to spotting a country's slide into autocracy ... This book is broader ... She has professorial fun describing despotic tactics with modern-day echoes ... Dismissive of hyperbole, the former secretary of state is still nervy about Donald Trump' Economist

`Having fled both Hitler's Germany and Czechoslovakia's Communist uprising as a child, Albright's acquaintance with fascism is practically a part of her DNA. With America's global standing now downgraded from "full democracy" to "flawed democracy" by the Economist Intelligence Unit, this is no time for complacency. Albright outlines the warning signs of fascism and offers concrete actions for restoring America's values and reputation. There is priceless wisdom on every page' Kirkus Starred review
