How to Stand Up to a Dictator

$ 29.99

Journalist Maria Ressa has spent decades speaking truth to power, challenging corruption and malfeasance in her native country, the Philippines. But her work tracking disinformation networks seeded by the government, spreading lies to its own citizens laced with anger and hate, made her an enemy of her country's most powerful man: President Duterte.

Hounded by the state and its allies using the legal system to silence her, accused of numerous crimes, and charged with cyberlibel for which she was found guilty, Ressa faces years in prison and thousands in fines. At a time when authoritarian threats to the free press and democracy are growing around the world, Ressa's cause has been embraced by world leaders, including Hilary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, and Amal Clooney, as well as all who cherish journalistic freedom.
