Born in Russia, award-winning journalist Masha Gessen has an unparalleled understanding of the events and forces that have wracked Russia in recent times. The best-selling biographer of Vladimir Putin has written extensively on the resurgence of totalitarianism in the Soviet regime in The Future is History. Latest book Surviving Autocracy explores ravages to liberal democracy in the wake of Trump and corroding Russian influences on truth, the media, the justice system and cultural norms. Currently a staff writer at the New Yorker, and also the author of a book on Pussy Riot, Gessen’s crosscultural fluency provides invaluable insights into manifestations of power at this critical moment. In conversation with Jack Tame.
