Favorite quote

From the late 1980s to the 2020s, in the heartlands of both Russia and the United States, I saw grim reflections of the decline of my hometown and my family's experiences in the United Kingdom, and I watched similar populist impulses emerge in the politics of all three countries.

Fiona Hill

Introduction

Is it natural that democracy gives way to authoritarianism? Is there a way to make sense of the anti-democratic wave we're seeing around the globe?

Fiona Hill had the international spotlight when she testified in the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump for his campaign to promote Ukraine's intervention in the 2020 presidential election. The author has a Ph.D. from Harvard University and has served as a nonpartisan foreign policy expert for three American presidents.

Hill grew up in an impoverished former mining town in North East England. In her 2021 memoir, she describes how this background laid the path for her future career as an advisor for American foreign policy. Anyone with an interest in Russian, British, or American history will learn about democracy, populism, and political polarization in Hill's incisive, policy-driven memoir.
