Masha Gessen in conversation with Orville Schell

The relationship between Russia and the West is, shall we say, complicated. Are we headed toward a new Cold War? Join Russian-American and celebrated journalist Masha Gessen (‘The Future Is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia’) and Orville Schell (former professor and Dean at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism and author of ‘Wealth and Power’) for insight into the state of protest, free speech, and human rights from powers that now pose the greatest challenges to the liberal democracies of the world.
