Ill WindsAnd Turkey the Philippines and beyond while China and Russia grew increasingly bold and bullying Then with Trump's election at home the global retreat from freedom spread from democracy's margins to its heart Ill Winds' core argument is stark the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on US global leadership If we do not reclaim our traditional place as the keystone of democracy today's authoritarian swell could become a tsunami providing an opening for Vladimir Putin Xi Jinping and their admirers to turn the twenty first century in. I agree with the author that recent world events do pose a threat to liberal democracy The author provides some good approaches for combatting recent trends and describes well the threat of China and Russia in undermining the current order of international cooperation and democracy The book could be trimmed down especially as the latter chapters seem redundant
