Few modern Russian leaders have manipulated popular perceptions of history and memory as effectively as President Vladimir Putin. Putin’s knack for embracing Russian national greatness and stoking anti-Western grievances is on full display as the country gears up for the March 2018 presidential election, which is widely expected to lead to an eventual transition to the post-Putin era.
Please join the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for a conversation with Moscow-based foreign correspondent Shaun Walker as he discusses his new book, The Long Hangover: Putin’s New Russia and the Ghosts of the Past.
A reception will follow and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
Shaun Walker is the Moscow correspondent for the Guardian and has reported from Russia for more than a decade.
Andrew Weiss is vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
