Russia: One Hundred Years of Fortitude and Solitude
Richard Sakwa,
University of Kent
Saturday 23rd June 11.00 - 5.00pm
Stonehill House, OX14 4AA
According to one influential commentator, Vladislav Surkov, Russia faces ‘one hundred years of solitude’: once again Russia will have to find its own path to the future and will have to rely on itself to develop. Many believe that the problem lies in Vladimir Putin’s leadership, but any new leader will face the same problem of reconciling the many different views of Russia’s future, which veer from the apocalyptic to the benign. But the fundamental question is whether Russia can manage the change from managed to liberal democracy without another revolution.

Book Launch for the extraordinary
Death of the Vazir-Mukhtar

Wednesday 13 June
6.00PM – 9.00PM
at Pushkin HOUSE 

Please join us to celebrate the launch of the first complete English translation of Yuri Tynianov’s Death of the
Vazir-Mukhtar, described by the French poet Louis Aragon as “the most extraordinary historical novel one
could read.” Telling the story of the last months of Alexander Griboyedov, writer and diplomat in Pushkin-era
Russia, we believe this whirling, immersive novel is one of the greatest works to emerge from the creative
maelstrom of the early Soviet Union.
