Can It Happen Here?: Authoritarianism in Americ...

With the election of Donald J. Trump, many people on both the left and right feared that America's 240-year-old grand experiment in democracy was coming to an end, and that Sinclair Lewis' satirical novel, It Can't Happen Here, written during the dark days of the 1930s, could finally be coming true. Is the democratic freedom that the United States symbolizes really secure? Can authoritarianism happen in America?  Acclaimed legal scholar, Harvard Professor, and New York Times best-selling author Cass R. Sunstein queried a number of the nation's leading thinkers. In this thought-provoking collection of essays, these distinguished thinkers and theorists explore the lessons of history, how democracies crumble, how propaganda works, and the role of the media, courts, elections, and "fake news" in the modern political landscape - and what the future of the United States may hold.  Contributors include:  Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School  Eric Posner, law professor at the University of Chicago Law School  Tyler Cowen, economics professor at George Mason University  Timur Kuran, economics and political science professor at Duke University  Noah Feldman, professor of law at Harvard Law School  Jonathan Haidt, social psychologist and Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University's Stern School of Business  Jack Goldsmith, Professor at Harvard Law School, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, and co-founder of Lawfare  Stephen Holmes, Professor of Law at New York University  Jon Elster, Professor of the Social Sciences at Columbia University  Thomas Ginsburg, Professor of International Law and Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences  Cass R.

It's junior year and Rachael is psyched to ditch dorm life and share a house with four other girls. But, she can't shake the ominous feeling about her narcissistic roommate-landlady, who has a history of derailing her love life. And then there are those uninvited visits by the ex-boyfriend of another roommate, who brings brushes with the law and heaps of drama as his calling card. When Rachael's mother and her psychic groupies show up in their double-decker bus during a house party, Mom reveals a troubling premonition. It seems like one more piece of weirdo-road-show nonsense - until Rachael's deceased former stalker manages to cause trouble from beyond the grave.
