The Death of Democracy

The Death of Democracy book cover Benjamin Hett chronicles the demise of constitutional rule in Germany from 1930-1934 and what enabled Nazism. The Death of Democracy: Hitler's Rise to Power and the Downfall of the Weimar Republic resonates with contemporary corollaries without ever having to identify them. The work serves as an important reminder of the fragility of democracy.
