  • "A brilliant and disturbing analysis, which should be read by anyone wishing to understand the political crisis currently engulfing the world"

    YUVAL NOAH HARARI, author of SAPIENS and HOMO DEUS
  • "This story of how Russia dismantled democracy, and the man who set its template for fake news, is chilling and persuasive ... unignorable... a disturbing and persuasive insight... Snyder's forensic examination of, for example the news cycle that followed the shooting down of flight MH17 makes essential reading ... Meticulously researched and footnoted."

    Tim Adams, Observer
  • "One of the best…brisk, conceptually convincing account of democracy’s retreat in the early years of 21st century"

    Luke Harding, Guardian
  • "Snyder’s central thesis is a strong one… Vividly and insightfully told."

    Edward Lucas, The Times
  • "A rollercoaster world calls for a news editor’s skills in processing facts and a philosopher’s ability to dissect ideologies. He has both."

    The Economist
