David Satter Discusses his recent book on Putin and Russian Politics

David Satter came to the Center for Advanced Governmental Studies to discuss his latest book, The Less You Know the Better You Sleep:  Russia's Road to Terror and Dictatorship Under Yeltsin and Putin.  Professor Satter discussed the questionable rise of power of Putin on the heels of several  bombings in Moscow that were attributed to Chechen terrorists.  However, Satter shared with the audience how these bombings had the fingerprints (almost literally) of Russia's own FSB all over them and suggested that the bombings were deliberate attempts to unify the Russians under Putin, who rose to power quickly thereafter.  It was a fascinating and timely discussison of Russia's past, present, and future.
