Post writers share views on Putin, March 21
Posted March 17, 2005; 05:31 p.m.
Two former Moscow bureau chiefs for the Washington Post will discuss "Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin and the Russian Counter-Revolution" at 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 21, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Susan Glasser and Peter Baker served as the Post's Moscow bureau chiefs until late 2004, covering Russia and 14 former Soviet republics. Their nearly four-year tour dovetailed with Putin's rise and put them at the center of several political, economic and terrorist world news events, including the revival of the Russian economy, the rollback of Russian democracy and terrorist acts in the Moscow theater and Beslan school. Their book, "Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin and the Russian Counter-Revolution," is due out this fall.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and is part of the series, "Journalists Writing the World," moderated by Professor Gary Bass.
