Register

This webinar will draw on some material from the book, The Russians are Coming, Again: The First Cold War as Tragedy, the Second as Farce (New York: Monthly Review Press, 2018), by Jeremy Kuzmarov and John Marciano. The webinar will go back to the period of the Russian revolution and include more recent examples of media bias in covering the war in Ukraine and Vladimir Putin, and a discussion of the consequences of this bias. The webinar will address the forgotten history of US Russian cooperation during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln and FDR, and hope of the 1945 Elbe River meeting when US and Russian troops embraced at the end of World War II. (this is a history never covered in the media and rarely in history courses in high school or US colleges). The book is available here: https://www.amazon.com/Russians-Are-Coming-Again-Tragedy/dp/1583676945
