Peril


Democracy Threatened

Woodward and Costa present a deadpan, nonpartisan chronicle of the events leading up to and following Trump’s election defeat.

Bob Woodward – journalism legend and associate editor of the Washington Post – and Robert Costa, the Post’s national political reporter, showcase their remarkable access to the White House with their blow-by-blow reporting of an unprecedented crisis in US governance. They take readers from the lead-up to the 2020 election through to the summer of 2021, focusing on Donald Trump, Joe Biden and the turbulent presidential transition.

Offering chronologically organized anecdotes with scant analysis, the authors leave readers to draw their own conclusions – to a point. The one-word title – in line with Woodward’s previous works on the Trump presidency – aptly describes the threat to American democracy.
