  • The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America

    Timothy Snyder

    The eminent Yale professor is a vociferous and learned defender of our institutions, under threat as they are from C21st propaganda and agitation. His exploration of what has happened in Ukraine in the last few years, among other things, leaves little room for doubt about Russian involvement in affairs at the heart of the US presidency. This is a brilliant analysis, and all the more disturbing because Snyder is an historian, not  a journalist or politician.
