With the election of Donald J. Trump, many people on both the left and right feared that Americas 240-year-old grand experiment in democracy was coming to an end, and that Sinclair Lewis satirical novel, It cant happen here, written during the dark days of the 1930s, could finally be coming true. Is the democratic freedom that the United States symbolizes really secure? Can authoritarianism happen in America? [The editor] queried a number of the nations leading thinkers. In this...collection of essays, these...thinkers and theorists explore the lessons of history, how democracies crumble, how propaganda works, and the role of the media, courts, elections, and 'fake news' in the modern political landscapeand what the future of the United States may hold.
