Timothy Snyder On Tyranny

This is Snyder’s 2017 book through which he offers a guide to resisting and surviving America’s turn towards authoritarianism. In the book, he notes that America has the advantage of having the chance to learn from the histories of other nations, particularly the Europeans, that have gone through a similar trend. They saw their democracy turn to fascism, Nazism, or communism.

Timothy Snyder Our Malady

Our Malady, is a 2020 book by Snyder that is a condemnation of America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic while also calling for urgency in rethinking health and freedom in the country. This stemmed from personal experience when he fell ill in December 29, 2019, and he had to wait for hours in an emergency room before finally ending up in surgery. This made him reflect on the health sector’s fragility.’
