We Shall Be Masters: Russian Pivots to East Asia from Peter the Great to Putin
Join the Foreign Policy Research Institute for a discussion with Chris Miller on his new book, We Shall Be Masters: Russian Pivots to East Asia from Peter the Great to Putin.
Why has Russia struggled to gain influence in Asia? In this month’s People, Politics, and Prose, Ron Granieri will be joined By FPRI’s Chris Miller to discuss his new book, We Shall Be Masters: Russian Pivots to East Asia from Peter the Great to Putin. Granieri and Miller will consider why Russia’s would-be pioneers have always struggled to project power into Asia and to maintain public and elite interest in their far-flung pursuits.
People, Politics, and Prose with Ron Granieri features in-depth conversations with authors of recent books on international affairs and national security. Moderated by FPRI’s Ronald J. Granieri, each session will build on the book’s contents to discuss the author’s influences and motivations, relating everything to current events to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political and historical context of our contemporary world.
