Dismantling Tyranny is the first significant study of how new democracies handled the legacy of the secret police of the previous totalitarian regimes. Edited by Ilan Berman of the American Foreign Policy Council and IWP Annenberg Professor J. Michael Waller, the Dismantling Tyranny contains chapters that study the cases of the Czech Republic, Estonia, the former East Germany, Lithuania, Nicaragua, Poland and Russia.


This isn’t just a history book. In the words of the publisher, “it is a guidebook designed to empower, inform, and guide future transitions toward democracy for those political leaders with the initiative and courage to embark upon such a visionary path.”
