HOW TO BE A DICTATOR: The Cult of Personality in the Twentieth Century
Looking at eight leaders: Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, "Papa Doc" Duvalier, Ceausescu, and Mengistu, the author shows how each one of these figures demanded constant demonstrations of loyalty from their people and their underlings. Dikotter offers a guide to the cult of personality and a map for exposing the lies tyrants tell to maintain their regimes. 16 pages of photos, some color.
