The remarkable, but hardly astonishing, return of Vladimir Putin to near absolute power in the Kremlin sets the stage for this reassessment of 21st-century Russia. With Jim Kenney, we'll review the past 12 months: the wielding of political power, the opposition, the repression, and the slowly changing role of Russia on the world stage. We'll spend considerable time trying to grasp the phenomenon that is Putin, and also meet a fascinating assortment of players that matter in the new, old Russia. As always, we'll try to look down the road to glimpse possible unfolding futures on an ancient landscape. Registration is $40 member; $48 non-member.
