A novel detailing how a dictator rises to power and dismantles democracy, It Can’t Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis, first published in 1935, and published as a Penguin Classic in 2017. Interestingly, Popovic’s first chapter is titled, It Can Never Happen Here, which is frequently the reaction of most would-be revolutionaries to the potential for success of non-violent revolution. What is critical for everyone to understand is that anything can happen anywhere, if the conditions are right:dictators and despots rise to power, people re-claim a place, a political system, a world for themselves.
Critical Landscapes: Art, Space, Politics, by Emily Eliza Scott and Kirsten Svenson, University of California Press, 2015. Several great essays on a range of topics, and helpful notes and resources at the end of each essay.
