Tony Wood - Russia Without Putin: Money, Power and the Myths of the New Cold War — in conversation with Gregory Afinogenov — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Friday, January 11, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Most media coverage of Russia today focuses on Putin, and often it seems the two are nearly synonymous. As Wood argues in his authoritative analysis of post-Soviet Russia, conflating the man and the country seriously distorts our understanding of what’s happening in Russia. Wood, a member of the editorial board of New Left Review and author of Chechnya: The Case for Independence, looks beyond Russia’s leader to consider a wide range of social, economic, and political factors that challenge many of our assumptions.

Wood will be in conversation with Gregory Afinogenov, assistant professor in History at Georgetown University and a contributor to n+1Jacobin and the London Review of Books, for a conversation about the problems of writing on contemporary Russia, and about the larger questions that critical analysis of the county needs to address in future.
