Strongmen: From Mussolini to Trump
February 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
What do strongman leaders across a century have in common? Why do people continue to follow them, despite the destruction they cause? Drawing on her new book, 𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘮𝘦𝘯: 𝘔𝘶𝘴𝘴𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘪 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘗𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘵, Ruth Ben-Ghiat discusses the playbook of corruption, virility, propaganda, violence they utilize, how people have resisted authoritarians over a century, and what we can do to strengthen democracy in America and around the world.
Ruth Ben-Ghiat is Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University. She writes frequently for CNN and other news and analysis sites on fascism, authoritarian leaders, propaganda, and threats to democracy around the world and how to counter them.
