ID : 1497   
« back to classes page
In orchestrating the return of Russia as a major player on the world’s geopolitical stage, it has been said of Vladimir Putin that he has “played a weak hand masterfully” and in doing so “he has turned disadvantage into advantage by filling a vacuum created by the U.S.’s ambivalence about continuing to act as a superpower.” In Putin’s World: Russia Against the West and with the Rest (Twelve, 2019), Angela Stent a former State Dept. official and currently a professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University, examines Putin’s motives, his ambitions, and the fraught relationship that has developed with the United States. In recounting this relationship Stent will show how the post-Cold War era has given way to a new, more dangerous world where Russia poses significant challenges to the U.S. in every corner of the globe and its influence on the rising toxicity of our domestic politics. You may be of another opinion. Let’s have a discussion.
