Labyrinth Books and the Princeton Public Library

Labyrinth and the Princeton Public Library host a conversation between two acclaimed journalists and Russia-experts. They will be discussing Shaun Walker’s new book.

In “The Long Hangover,” Walker provides a deeply reported, bottom-up explanation of Russia’s resurgence under Putin. By cleverly exploiting the memory of the Soviet victory over fascism in World War II, Putin’s regime has made ordinary Russians feel that their country is great again.
