After surveying classic and leading theoretical accounts of totalitarianism, authoritarianism, and various types of dictatorship, Brooker (politics, Victoria U. of Wellington) addresses such questions as how and why military or party dictatorships emerge, how a new dictatorship consolidates its position by seeking legitimacy and strengthening its control over state and society, how people establish personal dictatorships, and how dictatorships make policy.
