Un análisis demoledor sobre el panorama político actual.

El mejor libro del año segúnThe Washington Post yThe financial Times

Las democracias occidentales modernas están bajo asedio y el auge del autoritarismo es una cuestión que debería preocuparnos a todos.En El ocaso de la democracia, Anne Applebaum (premio Pulitzer y una de las primeras historiadoras que alertó de las peligrosas tendencias antidemocráticas en Occidente) expone de forma clara y concisa las trampas del nacionalismo y de la autocracia. En este extraordinario ensayo explica por qué los sistemas con mensajes simples y radicales son tan atractivos.

Los líderes despóticos no llegan solos al poder; lo hacen aupados por aliados políticos, ejércitos de burócratas y unos medios de comunicación que les allanan el camino y apoyan sus mandatos. Asimismo, los partidos nacionalistas y autoritarios que han ido tomando relevancia en las democracias modernas ofrecen unas perspectivas que benefician exclusivamente a sus partidarios, permitiéndoles alcanzar unas cotas de riqueza y poder inigualables.

Siguiendo los pasos de Julien Benda y Hannah Arendt, Applebaum retrata a los nuevos defensores de las ideas antiliberales y denunciacómo estas élites autoritarias utilizan las teorías de la conspiración, la polarización política, el terrorífico alcance de las redes sociales e incluso el sentimiento de nostalgia para destruirlo todo y redefinir nuestra idea de nación.

Escrito de forma magistral, y de lectura urgente y necesaria, El ocaso de la democracia es un brillante análisis pormenorizado del terremoto que está sacudiendo el mundo y una apasionante defensa de los valores democráticos.

La crítica ha dicho...
«¿Cómo se torcieron nuestras democracias? Applebaum nos ofrece una respuesta en este extraordinario ensayo.»
Timothy Snyder

«La experiencia histórica y el conocimiento de Applebaum de la Europa contemporánea y de los Estados Unidos iluminan lo distintivo y eterno de los peligros políticos que enfrentamos hoy [...]. El ocaso de la democracia ofrece muchas lecciones sobre la antigua lucha entre los conceptos de democracia y de dictadura. Pero quizás lo más importante es lo frágil que es la democracia: su supervivencia depende de las decisiones que toman cada día las élites y la gente común.»
Sheri Berman, The Washington Post

«Un relato a menudo aleccionador, a veces impactante, pero nunca desesperante del auge del autoritarismo en Occidente.»
Los Angeles Review of Books

Readers' opinions about El ocaso de la democracia by Anne Applebaum

The themes of resilience and hope resonated deeply with me. This book taught me valuable life lessons that I'll carry with me for years to come.

The plot twists were executed masterfully. I was left gasping at every unexpected turn, and the suspense kept me on edge throughout. Bravo to the author for keeping me guessing.

What a rollercoaster of emotions! I laughed, cried, and everything in between. The author's ability to evoke such raw feelings is truly commendable. It's a story that will stay with me forever.
