American Democracy and the Authoritarian Tradition of the West

Dr. Mario DiNunzio explores the legacy of the enlightenment and the European reaction to the American Revolution.  The west’s fascination with authoritarianism didn’t stop with the American Revolution—or even with the French.  DiNunzio puts that history into context with implications for the rise of new authoritarian movements today.

Mario DiNunzio is Emeritus Professor of History at Providence College, where he has taught for many years and he continues to teach one section in the College’s Development of Western Civilization Program.  He has written essays on Civil War history, and his books include Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Third American Revolution and Who Stole Conservatism.
