‘It Could Happen Here’

It’s almost impossible to imagine that unbridled hate and systematic violence could come for us or our families. But it has happened in our lifetimes in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. And it could happen here.

In this urgent book, Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the storied ADL (Anti-Defamation League), sounds an alarm, warning that this age-old trend is gathering momentum in the United States—and that violence on a more catastrophic scale could be just around the corner.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Greenblatt offers a bracing primer on how we—as individuals, as organizations, and as a society—can strike back against hate.
