';When Gessen speaks about autocracy, you listen.'The New York Times

';The Platonic ideal of the anti-Trump Trump book.' The Washington Post

As seen on MSNBCMorning Joe and heard on NPR All Things Considered: the bestselling, National Book Award-winning journalist offers anessential guide to understanding, resisting, and recovering from the ravages of our tumultuous times.

In the run-up to the 2016 election, Masha Gessen stood out from other journalists for the ability to convey the ominous significance of Donald Trump's speech and behavior, unprecedented in a national candidate. Within forty-eight hours of his victory, the essay ';Autocracy: Rules for Survival' had gone viral, and Gessen's coverage of his norm-smashing presidency became essential reading for a citizenry struggling to wrap their heads around the unimaginable. Thanks to the special perspective that is the legacy of a Soviet childhood and two decades covering the resurgence of totalitarianism in Russia, Gessen has a sixth sense for signs of autocracyand the unique cross-cultural fluency to delineate its emergence to Americans.

This incisive book provides an indispensable overview of the calamitous trajectory of the past few years. Gessen not only highlights the corrosion of the media, the judiciary, and the cultural norms we hoped would save us but also tells us the story of how a short few years have changed us, from a people who saw ourselves as a nation of immigrants to a populace haggling over a border wall, heirs to a degraded sense of truth, meaning, and possibility. Surviving Autocracy is an inventory of ravages but also a beacon to recoveryor to enduring, and resisting, an ongoing assault.
