Demagogue- The Fight to Save Democracy - Michael Signer

http://www.progressivebookclub.com/pbc2/viewBook.pbc?id=1242 Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy from Its Worst Enemies Distinguished Speaker: Congressman Tom Perriello (D-VA) Featured Panelists: Peter Beinart, Editor-at-Large, The New Republic, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations Rachel Kleinfeld, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Truman National Security Project Michael Signer, formerly Senior Policy Advisor, Center for American Progress Action Fund; Author, Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy from Its Worst Enemies Discussion Moderated by: Brian Katulis, Senior Fellow, the Center for American Progress Action Fund; Author, The Prosperity Agenda A provocative dicussion about the future of democracy in the post-Bush years. Michael Signer's debut book, Demagogue illuminates how humanity's urge for liberty can triumph over the dark forces that threaten our freedom. The demagogue is a dangerous byproduct of democracy, an authoritarian leader who owes his initial rise to the democratic support of the masses and who will go to almost any extreme to expand his power.

Demagogue also unravels the mystery of how 21st century leaders have made such profound mistakes in Iraq and elsewhere, unleashing democracy's ancient enemy rather than securing a new democratic world.

In the end, Signer presciently reveals how America's historic victory over the demagogue at home can help a new generation of leaders rescue democracy across the world.
