Ruth Ben-Ghiat is a professor of history and Italian studies at New York University and an expert on fascism and authoritarianism. Her opinion essays and other writing have been featured by CNN, the Washington Post, The New Yorker and the Atlantic.
Ruth Ben-Ghiat's new book is Strongmen: From Mussolini to the Present.
She explains the real meaning and breadth of the Trump regime’s coup attempt and how societies begin to heal once authoritarian leaders have been removed. And Ben-Ghiat also highlights how “organized forgetting” imperils and undermines a true reckoning with the harm and damage caused to a country and its people by authoritarian leaders such as Donald Trump.
