Surviving Autocracy
Author: Masha Gessen
Publisher: Riverhead Books,

A lot has been written about Donald Trump. Not only news articles, but also books. A recent article in GEN – Medium’s publication on politics, power, and culture – featured an interview with Carlos Lozada. He is is a book critic for the Washington Post and read a total of 150 books on Trump, Trumpism, and his time in office. All this was done for a book on the topic he was writing himself. More books will for sure be written in the future, but if you should now read one and only one, Masha Gessen’s Surviving Autocracy, which came out this summer, should be it.
