Abstract or Introduction

Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt’s book, ‘How Democracies Die’, evaluates different phases of American democracy and the threats it faces from within. The book highlights the degradation of the democratic institutions and norms in the United States since the Cold War. It begins by exploring the grounds for rise of authoritarianism around the world. Based on this observations, the authors suggest that Trump election in 2016 was an outcome of many decades of declining political values and degradation of norms within American political system. While the United States remains one of the leaders of the democratic world, recent events in her politics such as disrespect of political institutions and Trump’s autocratic tendencies undermined this standing.
