The Death of Democracy – Published April 3, 2018

The Death of Democracy by Benjamin Carter Hett

Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (April 3, 2018)

A riveting account of how the Nazi Party came to power and how the failures of the Weimar Republic and the shortsightedness of German politicians allowed it to happen.

He offers a powerful lesson for today, when democracy once again finds itself embattled and the siren song of strongmen sounds ever louder.
