Description

A graphic edition of historian Timothy Snyder’s best-selling book of lessons for surviving and resisting America’s arc toward authoritarianism, featuring the visual storytelling talents of renowned illustrator Nora Krug. Timothy Snyder’s New York Times best-seller On Tyranny uses the darkest moments in twentieth-century history, from Nazism to Communism, to teach twenty lessons on resisting modern-day authoritarianism.

Among the twenty include a warning to be aware of how symbols used today could affect tomorrow (4: Take responsibility for the face of the world), an urgent reminder to research everything for yourself and to the fullest extent (11: Investigate), a point to use personalised and individualised speech rather than cliched phrases for the sake of mass appeal (9: Be kind to our language), and more.

In this graphic edition, Nora Krug draws from her highly inventive art style in Belonging at once a graphic memoir, collage-style scrapbook, historical narrative and trove of memories to breathe new life, colour, and power into Snyder’s riveting historical references, turning a quick-read pocket guide of lessons into a visually striking rumination.

In a time of great uncertainty and instability, this edition of On Tyranny emphasises the importance of being active, conscious, and deliberate participants in resistance.
