The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and the struggle for Russia

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

LSE public lecture


Former BBC correspondent Angus Roxburgh talks about his forthcoming book on the Putin years and Russia's relationship with the West. Drawing on exclusive interviews conducted for a new BBC documentary series, he describes Putin's descent into authoritarianism, and also argues that the West threw away chances to bring Russia in from the cold, by failing to understand its fears and aspirations following the collapse of communism.

Angus Roxburgh is one of Britain's most distinguished foreign correspondents. An author and renowned journalist, he was the Sunday Times Moscow Correspondent in the mid-1980s and the BBC's Moscow correspondent during the Yeltsin years. He is the author of The Second Russian Revolution and Pravda: Inside the Soviet Press Machine. His new book about which he will speak is entitled The Strongman: Vladimir Putin and the Struggle for Russia.
