“The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump’s authoritarian appeal.”—Salon It Can’t Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis’s later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler’s aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called “a message to thinking Americans” by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can’t Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today’s news. Includes an Introduction by Michael Meyer and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst

In It Could Happen Here, Bruce Judson, author of Go It Alone!, explains why revolution is possible in the United States—and makes the most disturbing case yet for why our economics are leading us inevitably toward a just such a crisis. Underscoring the historically dangerous levels of inequality in our country today, It Could Happen Here “will cause you to think about the risks for a nation divided between haves and have nots.” (Walter Isaacson)

This is a story of intrigue, treachery, murder, and gross incompetence It's fiction -of course - for now. Still, something like this could happen if we are not careful. Donald Trump through guile and luck (is it really luck?) is elected as the 45th President of The United States. Few realized on Inauguration Day that it was going to be the longest Presidency. Follow The Donald as he rules America with his over-sized ego, his "faultless" understanding of issues, his talent for negotiating with world leaders, and his ability to make those classic amazingly great deals he promised during his campaign. After all, The Donald wrote a best-seller on making great deals. Even the new Saudi King, Abdul has read it. This is an often dramatic, exciting, fast-moving tale filled with twists and surprises. There is even some humor - very dark humor. Remember, humor is defined by some as other people's tragedies. Fortunately, the "other people" in this case are fictional. Be careful, it could happen here. CHM ========= "A must read for political buffs.: " - Donald Andrews "Mr. Meyer weaves a very plausidble tale. Thank God it's fictional." - V. Pineda, Barcelona Literary Review "I couldn;t stop reading this fast moving political tale. -- Mike Holidy, Rolling Stonded
