Why is democracy so threatened around the world and in the US? And what can we do about it? With aspects of democracy in the US, as well as globally, now feeling under threat, President Barack Obama’s former aide and confidant, Ben Rhodes, visited dozens of countries to meet with outsiders: politicians, activists and dissidents who were confronting the same nationalism and authoritarianism that threatened the US. The result is ‘After The Fall: Being American in the World We’ve Made.’
Ben Rhodes is the author of the New York Times bestseller, ‘The World As It Is’, co-host of 'Pod Save the World'; a contributor for NBC News and MSNBC, the co-chair of National Security Action; and an advisor and speechwriter to President Barack Obama.
“A dystopian odyssey through the dark authoritarian landscape of the modern world.”
