Additional Resources

This project has benefitted from others’ efforts to assemble reading lists that shed light on our current political moment. These are terrific resources for anyone interested in democratic erosion in the United States, the West and the world.

We also have drawn inspiration from important new efforts to track the state of democracy in the US and other parts of the world. Two of these efforts, Bright Line Watch and Authoritarian Warning Survey, have been especially influential. Check them out.
