A graphic edition of Timothy Snyder's On Tyranny, the New York Times bestselling guide to protect democracy and resist modern-day authoritarianism.
In the twentieth century, European democracies collapsed into fascism. From Nazism to communism, these were movements in which a leader or a party claimed to give voice to the people, promised to protect them from global existential threats, and rejected reason in favour of myth.
Societies can break, democracies can fall, ethics can collapse, and ordinary people can find themselves in unimaginable circumstances. In On Tyranny, Timothy Snyder provided twenty essential lessons to avoid the same fate as the Europeans who saw democracy yield to totalitarianism. In this graphic edition, award-winning illustrator Nora Krug creates a highly inventive, vivid portrait of those important lessons, bringing action to life with colour and creativity.
In a time of uncertainty and instability, On Tyranny emphasizes the importance of deliberate participation in resistance.
