St. Louis County Library presents Anne Applebaum.
A Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and journalist explains, with electrifying clarity, why some of her contemporaries have abandoned liberal democratic ideals in favor of strongman cults, nationalist movements, or one-party states. Describing politicians, journalists, and intellectuals who have abandoned democratic ideals in the UK, U.S., and Europe, Applebaum reveals the patterns that link the new advocates of illiberalism and charts how they use conspiracy theory, political polarization, and nostalgia to change their societies.
