Ece Temelkuran - How to Lose a Country: The 7 Steps from Democracy to Dictatorship
Twice rated one of the ten most influential people in social media, Temelkuran is both an award-winning novelist and Turkey’s most-read political columnist. In her new book she looks at recent political events from around the world— Britain’s Brexit movement, the election of Trump, Erdoğan’s rigged elections in Turkey—identifying the pattern of an insidious wave of populism. Arguing that people need to stop saying “it can’t happen here” and face the reality that it is happening everywhere, Temelkuran points out the warning signs we can’t afford to ignore and proposes global answers to what has become a global problem.
