On Tyranny

On Tyranny

On Tyranny uses examples from European history to show how democracies have fallen in the past. It includes twenty rules to follow here in the US to avoid the same fate.

The text is from a book published in 2017. The illustrations are new. Though this book is labeled The Graphic Edition, it is not in a traditional graphic novel format. Rather, the illustrations are used very effectively to drive home the main points in the text.

If you haven’t read On Tyranny before, by all means pick up this version. The illustrations really break up the text in a good way. The rules make sense. However, there is a distinctly anti-MAGA bias within this book. So, if you are pro-Trump, this book could be a difficult read. For everyone else, 4 stars!

Thanks to Ten Speed Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
