Davis Ongman provides insight into the lives of five leaders who callously transformed the world and serves as an invaluable resource in an era when democracy itself seems in peril Strongman is a book that is both deeply researched and deeply felt both an alarming warning and a galvanizing call to action both daunting and necessary to read and discuss Cynthia Levinson author of Fault Lines in the Constitution. So often history about people is so far in the past so to have this new book called Strongman include as one of the five dictators discussed by Saddam Hussein this is the history that the audience of the book can relate to It would have been interesting to actually have the book go backwards and start with Hussein alas it was still a focused book that explains democracy while also explaining the other kinds of governments so that readers can better understand where the countries of the dictators were and went to when lead by these strongman For the most part there were wars that were a part of the euation and massive changes to the structures of power so what Davis does is explains the catalysts for the power changes and a bit about how they did it to better understand the predicament that affected countries and the world leaving devastation in its wakeFor as short as the chapters are they run deep with history dates and political explanations Readers can use these introductions to be able to continue research or simply take the book at face value because the narrative style is not dry or dis interesting I also liked that there were plenty of images and pictures Overall a book I'll add to my HS library

STRONGMAN explores fascism by focusing on the personal trajectories of Mussolini Hitler Stalin Mao Hussein the selection of information writing would be ideal for a high school aged audience something I learned is that the term ‘fascist’ originated from Mussolini’s appropriation of the memory of Ancient Rome to mobilize nationalist sentiment in modern Italy therefore manipulating historical narrative is central to fascism itself Trump could be the sixth fascist depending on how Election Day 2020 transpires I withheld the fifth star bc the perspectives of survivors victims are entirely absent I understand that this book is abt the men but I think that the tragic effects should be part of their stories overall engaging informative thank you Netgalley for the advanced copy
