The Dictators. Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia
Hardcover, dj, in-8, xl + 849 pp., photos, bibliography. A chilling analysis of power corrupted by the vanity of ambitious and unscrupulous men.
Today (2018) we live a new era of dictators (effective or would be): Trump, Erdogan, Bolsonaro, Macron, Kabila and so many others ...
Indeed, "The role of the dictators was to try to remove restrictions on the exercice of power and the formation of policy from an initial position where their power was still far from absolute." (89) The road to dictatorship is an evolutive but perverse path using the weakness of the opposition.
By discouraging the reading of books, the possibilities to oppose get worse. So read !
