“Twilight of Democracy”

Anne Applebaum

Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

From the United States and Britain to continental Europe and beyond, liberal democracy is under siege, while authoritarianism is on the rise. Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and journalist Anne Applebaum chronicles this trend in her book "Twilight of Democracy: The Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism" and will outline some of the book’s main themes in this presentation. Part of a virtual series of events presented by The McCourtney Institute for Democracy at Penn State.
