It Can't Happen Here

by Sinclair Lewis - £8.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Penguin Classics) (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241310663 | ISBN 10: 0241310660

It's 1935 and discontent is rife in America. From the political margins appears Buzz Windrip, charismatic presidential candidate and 'inspired guesser at what political doctrines the people would like'.
 
Sweeping to power amid mass elation, he promises wealth for all and the dawn of a glorious new era. Small-town newspaper editor Doremus Jessop is worried, especially when the new regime becomes increasingly authoritarian. But what can one individual do to fight an all-powerful state?
 
Sinclair Lewis's terrifying cautionary tale pits liberal complacency against popular fascism and shows: yes, it really can happen here.
