    A 2018 book by two Harvard University political scientists about how elected leaders can gradually subvert the democratic process to increase their power. It warns against the breakdown of "mutual toleration" and respect for the political legitimacy of the opposition. The authors also assert the importance of respecting the opinions of those who come to legitimately different political viewpoints instead of attacking the patriotism of anyone who disagrees.

    Cyril Avery, born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do, if eccentric, Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, is adrift in the world.  At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, Cyril will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from-and will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more.  We also see the story of Ireland form the 1940s to today.

    An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world’s most ruthless and secretive dictatorships and the story of one woman’s terrifying struggle, at the age of seventeen, to avoid capture/repatriation.  She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family.  This is the story not only of Hyeonseo’s escape from darkness into the light, but also her coming of age, education, and the resolve she found to rebuild her life.
