On the August 4 episode of World Views @CIS, Suzette Grillot and Mitchell Smith discuss bringing bestselling author and historian Timothy Snyder to campus and share observations on Snyder’s work, as well as their implications for the United States. Then, Suzette speaks with Snyder about his 2017 book On Tyranny and some of his recent insights on the state of democracy.
