Event Details

Can anyone truly understand Russia? Why does it have such a tricky relationship with the West? And why does it love a strong leader? Russia is one of the most powerful nations on Earth, a master game player on the global stage with a rich history of war and peace, poets and revolutionaries – yet it’s a country with no natural borders, no true central identity at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Professor Mark Galeotti – Britain’s foremost Russia expert – answers these questions and tells Russia’s story. From Ivan the Terrible to Catherine the Great, from the Romanovs to the Russian Revolution and from Chernobyl to the arrival of an obscure politician named Vladimir Putin.

His short, elegant and perfectly formed new history of Russia has become an international bestseller.
