In From Washington to Moscow, veteran US Foreign Service officer Louis Sell traces the history of US–Soviet relations between 1972 and 1991 and explains why the Cold War came to an abrupt end. Drawing heavily on archival sources and memoirs, as well as his own experiences, Sell vividly describes events from the perspectives of American and Soviet participants.
He also shows how the USSR’s rapid and humiliating collapse helped set the foundation for Vladimir Putin’s rise to power.
Professor Charles Ziegler from UofL's Department of Political Science will interview Louis Sell on stage. A book signing will follow the discussion.
