Russian-American journalist and author Masha Gessen , has written a new book called Surviving Autocracy in which she describes how the United States has dramatically changed under the presidency of Donald Trump. In this important book, she shows how Trump has undermined the media, the judiciary, the US Congress, cultural values and norms, and language itself, and how and all of these changes have become normalized. She argues that the key to recovery is not an attempt to return to normalcy but a focus on reinvention and social progress for all.
