Join Harvard professors Daniel Ziblatt and Steven Levitsky in conversation with WBUR journalist Tiziana Dearing (MPP 2000) in a discussion about the perilous crisis in democratic politics in the U.S. and around the world.  Based on their new book—a sequel to the global bestseller How Democracies Die—this is an essential event for everyone interested in understanding why, and how, democracy has come under assault and what should be done about it.
