Russian Pivots to East Asia: from Peter the Great to Putin

January 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Please join MGIMO University’s Center for Advanced American Studies Book Talk Series with Chris Miller, Assistant Professor of International History at The Fletcher School, for a discussion on his book, We Shall Be Masters: Russian Pivots to East Asia from Peter the Great to Putin. Chris Miller’s We Shall Be Masters: Russian Pivots to East Asia from Peter the Great to Putin studies many attempts to chart an Asian policy—from bold imperial dreams of a thriving Russian Far East to Soviet efforts to inspire the developing world through soft power—and why all these policies ended up disappointing their drafters.

He is the author of Putinomics: Power and Money in Resurgent Russia and The Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy. He has previously served as the associate director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale, a lecturer at the New Economic School in Moscow, a visiting researcher at the Carnegie Moscow Center, a research associate at the Brookings Institution, and as a fellow at the German Marshall Fund’s Transatlantic Academy.
