How we handle Russia (and how Russia handles us) resonates throughout the world. Timothy Naftali, Associate Professor at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs and contributor to Slate, has used unprecedented access to Politburo and Soviet intelligence materials to trace an important chapter of the U.S.-Soviet relationship in Khrushchev’s Cold War. Join Naftali as he reveals three staggering moments when Khrushchev’s inner circle restrained him from plunging the superpowers into war, new takes on the Cuban missile crisis, and Soviet actions in under-examined hot spots in Asia and the Middle East. Naftali’s understanding of Khrushchev’s dangerous and strategic game gives us insight into today’s unpredictable global affairs.
