In the typical American mind, the word "authoritarianism" conjures an image of 20th Century totalitarianism, such as life under Stalin or Hitler. Because of this inaccurately narrow understanding authoritarianism -- the most common form of government across time and space -- we tend to ignore elements of autocracy in our midst. This course interrogates the concept of "authoritarianism", examines tell-tale signs of creeping authoritarianism, and offers students tools to better detect the erosion of democracy.
