The sinister philosophy underlying Russian authoritarianism, the torturous drive for freedom in Ukraine, and the manipulation of U.S. elections are the subjects of this brilliant and original book that combines history, philosophy and astute contemporary political analysis. Snyder has connected the dots, explaining how Russian goals – the undermining of the European Union and NATO, the discrediting of democracy – were achieved with Western connivance. This book will not only help Western readers understand the motivations of a dictatorial Russian leader, it will force them to look harder at the flaws in their own societies too.
