How Democracies Die
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Comprehensive, enlightening, and terrifyingly timely.”
New York Times Book Review


“Cool and persuasive... How Democracies Die comes at exactly the right moment.”
The Washington Post

Donald Trump’s presidency has raised a question that many of us never thought we’d be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent more than twenty years studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang—in a revolution or military coup—but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms. The good news is that there are several exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that, by electing Trump, we have already passed the first one.

Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die—and how ours can be saved.

Conservative Parties and the Birth of Democracy (Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics)
How do democracies form and what makes them die? Daniel Ziblatt revisits this timely and classic question in a wide-ranging historical narrative that traces the evolution of modern political democracy in Europe from its modest beginnings in 1830s Britain to Adolf Hitler's 1933 seizure of power in Weimar Germany. Based on rich historical and quantitative evidence, the book offers a major reinterpretation of European history and the question of how stable political democracy is achieved. The barriers to inclusive political rule, Ziblatt finds, were not inevitably overcome by unstoppable tides of socioeconomic change, a simple triumph of a growing middle class, or even by working class collective action. Instead, political democracy's fate surprisingly hinged on how conservative political parties - the historical defenders of power, wealth, and privilege - recast themselves and coped with the rise of their own radical right. With striking modern parallels, the book has vital implications for today's new and old democracies under siege.

Structuring the State: The Formation of Italy and Germany and the Puzzle of Federalism

Germany's and Italy's belated national unifications continue to loom large in contemporary debates. Often regarded as Europe's paradigmatic instances of failed modernization, the two countries form the basis of many of our most prized theories of social science. Structuring the State undertakes one of the first systematic comparisons of the two cases, putting the origins of these nation-states and the nature of European political development in new light.


Daniel Ziblatt begins his analysis with a striking puzzle: Upon national unification, why was Germany formed as a federal nation-state and Italy as a unitary nation-state? He traces the diplomatic maneuverings and high political drama of national unification in nineteenth-century Germany and Italy to refute the widely accepted notion that the two states' structure stemmed exclusively from Machiavellian farsightedness on the part of militarily powerful political leaders. Instead, he demonstrates that Germany's and Italy's "founding fathers" were constrained by two very different pre-unification patterns of institutional development. In Germany, a legacy of well-developed sub-national institutions provided the key building blocks of federalism. In Italy, these institutions' absence doomed federalism. This crucial difference in the organization of local power still shapes debates about federalism in Italy and Germany today. By exposing the source of this enduring contrast, Structuring the State offers a broader theory of federalism's origins that will interest scholars and students of comparative politics, state-building, international relations, and European political history.

Como as Democracias Morrem (Em Portugues do Brasil)
Uma análise crua e perturbadora do fim das democracias em todo o mundo Democracias tradicionais entram em colapso? Essa é a questão que Steven Levitsky e Daniel Ziblatt - dois conceituados professores de Harvard - respondem ao discutir o modo como a eleição de Donald Trump se tornou possível. Para isso comparam o caso de Trump com exemplos históricos de rompimento da democracia nos últimos cem anos: da ascensão de Hitler e Mussolini nos anos 1930 à atual onda populista de extrema-direita na Europa; passando pelas ditaduras militares da América Latina dos anos 1970. E alertam: a democracia atualmente não termina com uma ruptura violenta nos moldes de uma revolução ou de um golpe militar; agora; a escalada do autoritarismo se dá com o enfraquecimento lento e constante de instituições críticas - como o judiciário e a imprensa - e a erosão gradual de normas políticas de longa data. Sucesso de público e de crítica nos Estados Unidos e na Europa; esta é uma obra fundamental para o momento conturbado que vivemos no Brasil e em boa parte do mundo e um guia indispensável para manter e recuperar democracias ameaçadas. "Talvez o livro mais valioso para a compreensão do fenômeno do ressurgimento do autoritarismo. Essencial para entender a política atual; e alerta os brasileiros sobre os perigos para a nossa democracia." Estadão "Abrangente; esclarecedor e assustadoramente oportuno." The New York Times Book Review "Livraço. A melhor análise até agora sobre o risco que a eleição de Donald Trump representa para a democracia norte-americana. [Para o leitor brasileiro] a história parece muito mais familiar do que seria desejável." Celso Rocha de Barros; Folha de S. Paulo "Levitsky e Ziblatt mostram como as democracias podem entrar em colapso em qualquer lugar - não apenas por meio de golpes violentos; mas; de modo mais comum (e insidioso); através de um deslizamento gradual para o autoritarismo. Um guia lúcido e essencial." The New York Times

Como Morrem as Democracias (Portuguese Edition)
SINOPSE Um olhar revelador sobre o fim das democracias em todo o mundo - e um guia para as resgatar. Bestseller do New York Times A presidência de Donald Trump veio levantar uma questão que muitos nunca pensaram colocar: a democracia norte-americana está em perigo? Steven Levitsky e Daniel Ziblatt, ambos professores em Harvard, dedicaram mais de 20 anos ao estudo da queda de democracias na Europa e na América Latina, e acreditam que a resposta para essa pergunta é «sim». As democracias já não se desmoronam mediante uma revolução ou golpe de Estado, caem aos poucos, através do enfraquecimento das instituições fundamentais, como os tribunais e os órgãos de comunicação social, e do desgaste gradual de normas políticas de longa data. Mas nem tudo está perdido. O autoritarismo pode ser revertido. O livro a ler sobre o atual estado da política norte-americana! Apoiados em décadas de pesquisa e apresentando vários exemplos históricos pelo mundo (Hungria, Turquia, Venezuela, Peru, entre outros países), os autores mostram como morrem as democracias e de que modo se poderá salvar a democracia norte-americana. «Impressionante. Uma análise provocante dos paralelismos entre a ascensão de Donald Trump e a queda de outras democracias.» - Kirkus Reviews

Cómo mueren las democracias (Spanish Edition)

Un libro que ha encabezado la lista de los más vendidos en Estados Unidos.

La aparición de distintos ejemplos de populismo en diferentes partes del mundo ha hecho salir a la luz una pregunta que nadie se planteaba unos años atrás: ¿están nuestras democracias en peligro? Los profesores Steven Levitsky y Daniel Ziblatt, de la Universidad de Harvard, han invertido dos décadas en el estudio de la caída de varias democracias en Europa y Latinoamérica, y creen que la respuesta a esa pregunta es que sí.

Desde la dictadura de Pinochet en Chile hasta el discreto y paulatino desgaste del sistema constitucional turco por parte de Erdogan, Levitsky y Ziblatt muestran cómo han desaparecido diversas democracias y qué podemos hacer para salvar la nuestra. Porque la democracia ya no termina con un bang (un golpe militar o una revolución), sino con un leve quejido: el lento y progresivo debilitamiento de las instituciones esenciales, como son el sistema jurídico o la prensa, y la erosión global de las normas políticas tradicionales. La buena noticia es que hay opciones de salida en el camino hacia el autoritarismo y los populismos de diversa índole.

Basándose en años de investigación, los autores revelan un profundo conocimiento de cómo y por qué mueren las instituciones democráticas. Un análisis alarmante que es también una guía para reparar una democracia amenazada por el populismo.

Wie Demokratien sterben: Und was wir dagegen tun können (German Edition)
Warum die Demokratie bedroht ist – und wie wir sie retten können.

Demokratien sterben mit einem Knall oder mit einem Wimmern. Der Knall, also das oft gewaltsame Ende einer Demokratie durch einen Putsch, einen Krieg oder eine Revolution, ist spektakulärer. Doch das Dahinsiechen einer Demokratie, das Sterben mit einem Wimmern, ist alltäglicher – und gefährlicher, weil die Bürger meist erst aufwachen, wenn es zu spät ist. Mit Blick auf die USA, Lateinamerika und Europa zeigen die beiden Politologen Steven Levitsky und Daniel Ziblatt, woran wir erkennen, dass demokratische Institutionen und Prozesse ausgehöhlt werden. Und sie sagen, an welchen Punkten wir eingreifen können, um diese Entwicklung zu stoppen. Denn mit gezielter Gegenwehr lässt sich die Demokratie retten – auch vom Sterbebett.
