Can It Happen Here? Authoritarianism in America by Cass Sunstein.

With the election of Donald J. Trump, many people on both the left and right feared that America's 240- year-old grand experiment in democracy was coming to an end, and that Sinclair Lewis' satirical novel, It Can't Happen Here, written during the dark days of the 1930s, could finally be coming true. Is the democratic freedom that the United States symbolizes really secure? Can authoritarianism happen in America? - Harper Collins Publisher
