On Tyranny Graphic Edition: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century

by Timothy Snyder Author and Nora Krug Illustrator

When Timothy Snyder's slim paperback On Tyranny was published in early 2017, it became an instant bestseller in the US as people struggled to come to grips with the election of an authoritarian regime. The book became a much-needed road map for individuals wondering what they could do to prevent the country from slipping into fascism, repression, and genocide. Lessons include the importance of looking at the history and multiple sources and perspectives behind news, being wary of simply repeating (or believing) phrases, and having respect for the power of language, whether it's wielded by a public figure or an ordinary, private person. A graphic novel edition, drawn in evocative, inventive collage style that makes unconventional use of the page and brings the lessons of the text to life, at turns chilling and hopeful.
