Descrizione prodotto


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 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.

Steal a car, go to jail. Steal a country, and the world will look the other way while you hang on for decades, looting, lying, raping, murdering. I read this book with mounting anger: “I follow the news, so why was I learning about the atrocities of these dictators for the first time? Does no one care? What hope is there for people living under the rule of these thugs? Why does my country (Canada) have trade and diplomatic relations with third-world bandits?” It’s a book that will leave you very, very angry, yet paradoxically, it’s an easy read, almost funny in spots, with scathing sarcasm.
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.

OK..all Indians should read this,to see familiar traits among all leaders starting at Panchayat levels.The fact that not a single Indian appears between the pages of this political primer is ,somewhat a consolation;or are many countries elsewhere is far worse?

4.0 su 5 stelle A Great Book on Dictators- And Inside on What is Ahead for Twitler's America 21 marzo 2017

I purchased this book after Trump won the election, and it is sad and comical how this book has predicted so many of the choices he and his swampy inner circle have made in the first few months of his administration.

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.

I do not get the feeling reading this book that the writers have much personal experience possibly fortunately with their subject. I have experienced some of it in the Gulf, Iran and Palestine. One of the main points missing in this book is a study of ideology. If you think about it, to run a country a democracy needs approximately 50% of the community, you maybe able to get by with less but ball park figure you need about 50%. A dictatorship needs much less but it still needs say 20% to operate. There are generals, colonel, ministers, department, heads, judges, police chiefs, businessmen etc all that have to have to serve you. At the very least you need the people holding the guns to do what you tell them. Money will help but still you need something more. This is where an ideology helps.

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.
