Randall Wood, author, engineer, and teacher, has lived in Asia, Africa, and Latin America for most of his adult life, working in engineering, construction, agronomy, diplomacy, and teaching. Much of the inspiration for this book came from personal experience and observation. He writes, "Time and time again, when the media would report some new political atrocity, I would mutter, 'Well, that's a move straight out of the Dictator's Handbook.' If I said to myself, `Next, the president will insist on constitutional reform,' I was too frequently right. Finally, I began to wonder if there truly was some sort of Handbook these political clowns were using to organize their governments and plot their next moves. And now, finally, there is." Writing this book has been a sort of personal catharsis. He is the author of two other books and several technical manuals. His website is http://www.therandymon.com. Carmine DeLuca, writer and history enthusiast, has long cultivated an interest in the authoritarians of every stripe. In part this fascination stems from his personal life -- a Bonapartist father, an aunt named after the Battle of Adowa, and a grandfather and great uncle in Mussolini's army. Two decades of reading and thinking on the historical significance of ``great'' men plus a fantastic library of books on the Romans, Fascists, Napoleon, Greeks, and beyond have prepared him for the writing of this book.

If you think dictators can only seize power in banana republics and African backwaters, then read this book and learn to watch for the danger signs. Recognize what is happening in the United States and several European countries. Dictator’s Handbook shows how democracy can be undermined, step by step. . It’s a valuable book.
This book was meant to give a powerful narrative of themes and actions which have transcended though our greatest dictators. I doubt that the writer ever imagined it would happen on American soil. But if you want a prediction of what may come, this book is an informative read.
Often this ideology is something that put you into power. It is something that you probably once believed in and gave up considerably much for. Most dictators and their lieutenants actually have suffered greatly for this ideology. Castro, for example, gave up the privileges of the son of a wealthy farmer, to adopt leftist anti-imperialist politics. He spent a year in jail, before becoming a revolutionary. Robert Mugabe gave up a teaching position to become a 'progressive' for that he was incarcerated for ten years. Many of their lieutenants would have similar histories. Lenin was exiled and lost a brother. Stalin spent most of his youth in prisons and on the run. There is no evidence that they do not believe for example Nicolae Ceau'escu sang "The Internationale" while being led up against the wall and shot.
It justifies their rule and helps them often it is mixed with nationalism, This is what largely kept Germans fighting in Berlin long after the cause was lost, what kept Russians fighting at Moscow when many thought the cause was lost. This drives the Pakistani to keep battling India long after the war been lost.
This book is a very light-hearted view on this subject.
