On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century

Timothy Snyder

In short, very straightforward pieces, written perhaps with his students at Yale in mind, the great historian of the mid C20th and the Nazis has put individual responsibility and the urgent need for political engagement centre-stage. Cutting straight through murky ‘alternative facts’, Snyder has given us a supreme demonstration of how we ought to learn from history. Essential reading.
