In his latest book, “On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century,” award-winning author and historian Timothy Snyder warns of new threats to the political order that are not unlike the totalitarianism of the past. A Washington Post reviewer wrote that Snyder’s new book, “fits alongside your pocket Constitution and feels only slightly less vital.” His warnings and lessons from history provide the focus for this edition of Wilson Center NOW. Guest Timothy Snyder is the Housum Professor of History at Yale University and the author of the new best-selling book, “On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century.” His previous works include, “Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin” and “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning.” Snyder is a member of the Committee on Conscience of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and is a permanent fellow of the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna. Host John Milewski is the executive producer and managing editor of Wilson Center NOW and also serves as director of Wilson Center ON DEMAND digital programming. Previously he served as host and producer of Dialogue at the Wilson Center and Close Up on C-SPAN. He also teaches a course on politics and media for Penn State’s Washington Program.
http://www.politics-prose.com/book/9780804190114 Snyder is the award-winning author of Bloodlands and Black Earth, and his extensive study of the Holocaust has made him one of the foremost experts on authoritarian movements. In this brief and urgent call-to-action, Snyder, the Housum Professor of history at Yale, identifies striking parallels between the political landscape of pre-war Europe and today’s United States. History’s lessons are many, however, and while democracies can fail, they can also resist and grow stronger. From the examples of the twentieth century, Snyder has distilled twenty essential points that should guide the current struggle. They are as simple as “do not obey in advance” and “beware the one-party state,” and as inspiring as “contribute to good causes” and “learn from peers in other countries.” Founded by Carla Cohen and Barbara Meade in 1984, Politics and Prose Bookstore is Washington, D.C.'s premier independent bookstore and cultural hub, a gathering place for people interested in reading and discussing books.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Two thirds of the world lives under dictatorship, yet we know very little about dictatorship. How are dictatorships different and how significant are the differences? Dr Natasha Ezrow is a Senior Lecturer in Government at the University of Essex. She has recently completed a new book Failed States and Institutional Decay, and she published two books in 2011 on dictatorships. Dictators and Dictatorships is an introductory textbook and The Politics of Dictatorship is a research monograph on the duration of authoritarian regime types. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
