Larry Diamond - Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 16, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

A senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and founding co-editor of the Journal of Democracy, Diamond is widely considered one of our leading contemporary scholars of democracy. His new book draws on his extensive academic work as well as his experience advising governments and international organizations, arguing that the global rise of authoritarianism has brought the world to a crucial crossroads. If the trend of illiberal leadership continues, it could open the way for figures like Putin and Xi Jinping to extend their reach. This could be prevented, however, if the world’s democracies, led by the U.S., reassert the principles of freedom. In this incisive analysis, Diamond examines how authoritarianism undermines democracies, shows how democracies can survive the threat, lays out detailed recommendations for policymakers, and advises citizens on ways they can strengthen democratic institutions.
