An Illustrated Talk

Gabriel Gorodetsky in conversation with John Thornhill, with readings by Belka Productions' Oliver King

7th OCTOBER 2015, Pushkin House, London

Gabriel Gorodetsky talks about his new English edition (Yale University Press 2015) of the diaries of Ivan Maisky, Soviet Ambassador in London 1932-43, to John Thornhill, Deputy Editor of the Financial Times. With excerpts from the diaries read by Belka Productions' Oliver King, and archival photographs. In English, followed by drinks.

Paul Kennedy, historian of international relations at Yale, has called Gorodetsky's new English edition 'really remarkable...perhaps the greatest political diary of the twentieth century'. In the words of Niall Ferguson, the book is 'a fascinating, rich volume, brimming over with insights into two radically different worlds'. Antony Beevor describes the book as 'not only a work of major historical importance. It also provides an utterly fascinating view of Anglo-Soviet relations and British politics during the critical period of 1932 to 1943.'
