Award-winning Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen celebrates the release of her latest book, The Future Is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia.

 

In this cautionary tale for our time, Gessen chronicles the last three decades of Russia’s devolution into a frightening retro-totalitarian state run by a leader with an iron fist. Told through the stories of several Russians who have lived through this pivotal era, The Future is History documents the swift erosion of democracy and offers an illuminating, in-depth perspective on daily life under a regime that has turned on its own people.

 

In conversation with David Remnick, a book signing with Gessen will follow.
