Award-wining journalist Marvin Kalb comes to the club to discuss his latest book, Imperial Gamble: Putin, Ukraine, and the New Cold War. Mr. Kalb is presently senior advisor to the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. In his long and distinguished career with CBS and NBC, he served as Moscow correspondent, chief diplomatic correspondent, and moderator of Meet the Press.
In Imperial Gamble, Mr. Kalb examines how Putin reached the conclusion that opposition in Ukraine constituted an existential threat to Russia by taking a critical look at the recent political history of post-Soviet Russia. The book also journeys deep into Russian and Ukrainian history to explain what keeps the two countries together and yet, at the same time, drives them apart.
This book will be available for purchase and signing.
