Invite: With Dems, Strongman Author Ruth Ben-Ghiat Feb 2nd

Tuesday, Feb 2nd, 1pm ET – NDN Talks Strongmen With Ruth Ben-Ghiat – NDN is excited to host a discussion with noted author, historian and television commentator Ruth Ben-Ghiat for a discussion about her new book, “Strongmen,” and America’s current struggle with authoritarianism.  You can register for the event here, and learn more and order her acclaimed new book here

A quick hit on Strongmen from her site – “Ruth Ben-Ghiat is the expert on the "strongman" playbook employed by authoritarian demagogues from Mussolini to Putin—enabling her to predict with uncanny accuracy the recent experience in America. In Strongmen, she lays bare the blueprint these leaders have followed over the past 100 years, and empowers us to recognize, resist, and prevent their disastrous rule in the future.”  We have learned much from Professor Ben-Ghiat in recent months, and are excited to bring her to you. 

With Democrats Things Get Better – NDN's new signature presentation, "With Dems" is a deep dive into the performance of the two political parties over the past generation of American politics.  We believe the insights in With Dems are essential to understanding our current moment, and the possibiities the new Biden Presidency may bring.
