*Shortlisted for the 2020 Arthur Ross Book Award* From America’s leading scholar of democracy, a personal, passionate call to action against the rising authoritarianism that challenges our world order—and the very value of liberty Larry Diamond has made it his life's work to secure democracy's future by understanding its past and by advising dissidents fighting autocracy around the world. Deeply attuned to the cycles of democratic expansion and decay that determine the fates of nations, he watched with mounting unease as illiberal rulers rose in Hungary, Poland, Turkey, the Philippines, and beyond, while China and Russia grew increasingly bold and bullying. Then, with Trump's election at home, the global retreat from freedom spread from democracy's margins to its heart. Ill Winds' core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If we do not reclaim our traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian swell could become a tsunami, providing an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the twenty-first century into a dark time of despotism. We are at a hinge in history, between a new era of tyranny and an age of democratic renewal. Free governments can defend their values; free citizens can exercise their rights. We can make the internet safe for liberal democracy, exploit the soft, kleptocratic underbelly of dictatorships, and revive America's degraded democracy. Ill Winds offers concrete, deeply informed suggestions to fight polarization, reduce the influence of money in politics, and make every vote count. In 2020, freedom's last line of defense still remains "We the people."

Television journalist, Ava Barby's news scripts write themselves: Add X and Y, and any Z can be predicted. But while covering Egypt in 1983 during khamsin, the country's 50-day annual windstorm, her formula for predicting events fails. Reporting the discovery of a tomb, she is astounded that its pharaoh left this life without any treasure for the next. The desert yields her next surprise: A reclining megalith and its stone-faced guardian, half-seen through swirling sand. Epic unrest overtakes Egypt as khamsin continues, and Ava's astonishment grows apace with the upheaval. The murder, spying and mayhem that were just words in her news scripts become part of her life . . . and the turmoil masks a plot that changes Egypt's destiny as relentlessly as it changes Ava's.

With the wretched Síol Faolcháin destroyed, with war between England and Spain drawing to a close, Mary resumes smuggling contraband between the Old World and the new one and life is better than fair - until grim misfortune finds her. A freakish wave during a monstrous storm off the coast of Florida sweeps her overboard and she is lost.Mary's plucky protégé Elizabeth - headstrong, full of Spanish fire and raw ambition, but also very young - takes command. With prospects dwindling in the Americas, Elizabeth pledges Mary's ships to the newly formed Dutch East India Company and sails to the Spice Islands for nutmeg, mace, cloves and pepper - cargo more valuable than gold.Then, on a childish whim, Elizabeth ventures even farther east to Portuguese-held Macau where she is introduced to a powerful Chinese merchant named Féng Wú - and to the plentiful opium served liberally at the House of a Thousand Pleasures. She strikes a good bargain with Wú purchasing exotic Oriental goods - foolishly using a portion of the Company's spices as payment - but as she leads her little fleet west for home pirates sent by Wú attack. A ship is lost, a crew is slaughtered. Elizabeth withdraws to her cabin and turns to opium for comfort. Upon her return to Amsterdam, the Dutch promptly arrest Elizabeth for her betrayal. They confiscate her ships and Elizabeth plummets into a dark and bottomless pit of despair.As Elizabeth falters Mary, having survived her misfortune a world away, is slowly making her way back to Ireland. She travels on to Amsterdam where she is joyfully reunited with her men, though her rebuke of Elizabeth is harsh, and makes amends with the Company. The cost is steep. Mary and her lads must sail to the Far East and into war alongside the Dutch against the Portuguese. Still, such a voyage offers an opportunity. After fulfilling her obligations to the Dutch, Mary will introduce herself to the Chinaman named Féng Wú...
