Why Dictators?
Why Dictators?
By George W. F. Hallgarten
Macmillan, 1954, 379 pp

The author of an important study of imperialism here undertakes a comparative analysis of the political techniques of dictatorship and of the political and social circumstances which have been conducive to such a régime. The treatment is both historical and by type: Classical, Ultra-Revolutionary, and Counter- or Pseudo-Revolutionary.
