Pulitzer prize-winner Anne Applebaum’s Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism is on sale today for $2.99 as part of the Kindle US Daily Deal, and matched at Kobo US. Per its blurb, it was named a Best Book of the Year by the Washington Post and the Financial Times.
And its webpage also has a recommendation by Timothy Snyder, whose excellent course, The Making of Modern Ukraine, was videoed and put online by Yale. My husband and I watched the whole course over the span of a few weeks not long ago, and I highly recommend it. More info on the course and one of Snyder’s books is in this post.
