How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them by Jason Stanley
In this New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice, author Jason Stanley (How Propaganda Works) delivers an instructive and poignant examination of fascism-a resurgent presence in both developed and developing nations, including the United States-in this cogent and accessibly written book. Stanley cites past and present examples of fascist behavior from politicians-from Hitler, Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, and Benito Mussolini to Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump-and draws on sociology and critical race theory to identify 10 concepts and tools employed by political leaders to promote a fascist politics that rely on an "us-versus-them" mentality.
Join the League for a lively, in-depth discussion of this fascinating book. See old friends and meet new ones in a casual, relaxed setting!
