Former US secretary of state Madeleine Albright is alarmed about current fascist trends. She shares compelling reasons why she thinks you should be, too. Her bold book and her reasons for being worried are not reactionary or overtly partisan, but rely on her experiences as secretary of state, as ambassador to the United Nations, as a scholar, as a native of Czechoslovakia and as a refugee. She blends her personal reflections with sharp, solid, effective summaries of manifestations of fascism during the past century. She calls out the actions of President Donald Trump as a source of concern. Albright’s historical analyses and comparisons are succinct, significant and compelling. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends her evaluation to American voters regardless of party and to everyone vested in protecting democracy.
