Frank Dikotter is a historian and author.
The 20th Century was characterised by an attempt on the one hand to build up civil society and have cheques & balances, and on the other hand an attempt to concentrate power into the hand of a single dictator.
Expect to learn what the characteristics of a dictator are, why the 20th century created a perfect petri dish for this proliferation, how a dictator coerces his people into supporting him and how dictators deal with the paradox of hiding their goals of tyranny in a democratic society.
