內容簡介


「精彩又令人不安的分析,任何想要了解現代政治被捲入怎樣的危機中的人,都應該要閱讀這本書」─哈拉瑞,《人類大歷史》作者

在冷戰結束後,民主獲勝,這似乎看起來就是人類的未來,但事實並非如此,集權主義在普丁掌握俄羅斯的政權後,又再次回到俄羅斯。

集權主義的風潮從俄羅斯一路傳到歐洲和美國,因為執政者發現法西斯主義可以被富人們用來制定遊戲規則,普丁一路收攏同盟夥伴,民粹主義的興起、英國脫歐、川普當選美國總統等國際間重要事件,都顯示出普丁已達成目的,這樣的動盪也顯示出西方社會的無助。

作者提摩西‧史奈德是知名的歷史學家、耶魯大學歷史系教授,他的作品入圍、獲得許多獎項,他的銳利觀察和分析讓每本書出版後,就受到許多讀者喜愛。

From the author of On Tyranny comes a stunning new chronicle of the rise of authoritarianism from Russia to Europe and America.

With the end of the Cold War, the victory of liberal democracy was thought to be final. Observers declared the end of history, confident in a peaceful, globalized future. This faith was misplaced. Authoritarianism returned to Russia, as Putin found fascist ideas that could be used to justify rule by the wealthy. In the 2010s, it has spread from east to west, aided by Russian warfare in Ukraine and cyberwar and information war in Europe and the United States.

Russia found allies among nationalists and oligarchs everywhere, and its drive to dissolve Western institutions, states, and values found resonance within the West itself. The rise of populism, the British vote against the EU, and the election of Donald Trump were all Russian goals, but their achievement reveals the vulnerability of Western societies and the uncertain character of Western political order.

This threat to Western democracy presents an opportunity to better understand the pillars of our own political order. In this forceful and unsparing work of contemporary history, based on vast research as well as personal reporting, Snyder goes beyond the headlines to expose the true nature of the threat to democracy and law. By showcasing the stark choices before us--between equality or oligarchy, individuality or totality, truth and falsehood--Snyder restores our understanding of the basis of our way of life, offering a way forward in a time of terrible uncertainty.
