Up to the Minute - Russia: A New Cold War?
Department:WWS Office of Public Affairs and Communications
Audience:Restricted to WWS students, faculty, and fellows
Stephen Kotkin writes about power and the paradoxes of authoritarian regimes across the globe, how they are often simultaneously powerful and brittle, stable and unstable, long-lasting yet susceptible to precipitous collapse. Outside Princeton, he has worked for several foundations on higher education reform, mostly in the Communist countries, and serves as a consultant for investors in emerging markets. His current projects include a history of the world, as seen from Stalin’s desk.
