William Taubman, Political Science Professor Emeritus, Amherst College; Author, Gorbachev and The Pulitzer Prize-Winning Khrushchev: The Man and His Era
In Conversation with Philip Taubman, Consulting Professor, Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation; Former Moscow Bureau Chief, The New York Times

Brothers William and Philip Taubman know Russia well. William Taubman’s Khrushchev won the Pulitzer Prize, and his new book, Gorbachev, is already being critically praised as a riveting story of how the leader of “the evil empire” forged a peaceful partnership with the United States. It is also a compelling history of the Soviet Union and Russia. Philip Taubman worked for The New York Times as a reporter and editor for nearly 30 years, specializing in national security issues, including intelligence and defense policies. Come for a unique conversation about Russia then and now and what William Taubman terms “the importance of leaders who understood that the value of power is its ability to create a better world.”
