Yascha Mounk | The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It

Join Yascha Mounk for a reading and signing of his new nonfiction book, The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It.

The world is in turmoil. From India to Turkey and from Poland to the United States, authoritarian populists have seized power. As a result, Yascha Mounk shows, democracy itself may now be at risk. This is the first book to go beyond a mere description of the rise of populism. In plain language, it describes both how we got here and where we need to go. For those unwilling to give up on either individual rights or the popular will, Mounk shows, there is little time to waste: this may be our last chance to save democracy.

This event is co-sponsored by Better Boundaries. This campaign is committed to bringing people of all political persuasions together to work toward combating the negative impact gerrymandering has had on Utah’s communities.
