LARB Radio Hour: Masha Gessen on Russia’s Evolution from Soviet Socialism to Putinism

Wasn’t the collapse of the Soviet Union supposed to herald the dawn of a new era of unfettered freedom, liberal democracy, and the end of history? Instead Russia moved rapidly from Autocratic Socialism to Autocratic Oligarchy. Masha Gessen talks with co-hosts Eric Newman and Medaya Ocher about why she chose to investigate this world-historical disappointment by talking to young people who witnessed this calamitous transition first-hand. The result is Gessen’s National Book Award-nominated The Future of History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia, a work of literary journalism rife with the unique insights this novel approach revealed (to which our own Soviet-born Medaya adds her memories). Gessen also reflects on what Russia’s re-embracing of repression may teach us in our suddenly benighted land with an unstable leader who reveres strongmen like Putin.
