Madeleine Albright, who served as the first female U.S. Secretary of State (1997-2001), has an ominous message for Americans and the world regarding a trend sweeping the globe at this time. Part history lesson, part memoir, Albright's prescient book (written in the wake of Trump's election and published in 2018) serves as a stark warning and call to action if we are to preserve democratic norms. Her premise is that the fascism of a century ago was not atypical, and that it could happen again.
