Summary
A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chilling realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press
