Propaganda in Autocracies: Institutions, Information, and the Politics of Belief
(With Erin Baggott Carter.) 2023. Cambridge University Press.
"Informing (and misinforming) citizens to make them believe in the unassailability of autocratic rule is one of the fundamental chores of any tyrant. Employing an astonishing wealth of data and ingenious methods, Propaganda in Autocracies reveals when, how and with what consequences autocracies do that. This is an amazing book soon to be seen as a classic in the literature on authoritarianism."
