Chirot's classification scheme for understanding modern tyrannies makes this survey a valuable sourcebook on dictatorships.... A disquieting and ominous road map of the twentieth century's political horrors. -- Publishers Weekly


Chirot's classification scheme for understanding modern tyrannies makes this survey a valuable sourcebook on dictatorships.... A disquieting and ominous road map of the twentieth century's political horrors. -- "Publishers Weekly

Chirot's approach is both useful and unusual, as it isn't driven by ideology.... His book should be of lasting value as a quick reference to many of the worst regimes of our century.... Chirot's conclusions ... [are] clearly stated and intelligent.--Peter A. Jay "The Washington Times "

Chirot's insightful book looks squarely at radical evil ... and warns us of the array of new onslaughts against democratic values and governments that are to be expected from various quarters, most often in the name of some collective identity or self-styled expression of community.--Vladimir Tismaneanu "Journal of Democracy "
