SPECIAL NOTICE – RECOMMENED READING ADDITION

Yesterday I added Surviving Autocracy by Masha Gessen to the Recommended Reading List.   The book is much more than just another Trump basher!

Where I often use the term “Organized criminal enterprise” in my writing Gessen uses “Mafia State”.   Gessen compares Trump to autocrats of the past and present in this work with particular attention paid to Vladimir Putin who she has cover in her work as a journalist.
