Spymaster’s Prism: The Fight Against Russian Aggression
March 23, 2021 | 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
About the Event
How has the continuing work of Russian intelligence agencies impacted U.S.-Russian relations? In this month’s installment of People, Politics, and Prose with Ronald Granieri, we will be joined by former spymaster and author Jack Devine to speak about his new book, Spymaster’s Prism: The Fight Against Russian Aggression. Granieri and Divine will examine lessons from both our intelligence successes and our failures over the past seventy-five years. They will also discuss how to address our current strategic shortfall, emerge ahead of the Russians, and be prepared for whatever’s to come from any adversary.
People, Politics, and Prose with Ron Granieri features in-depth conversations with authors of recent books on international affairs and national security. Moderated by FPRI’s Ronald J. Granieri, each session will build on the book’s contents to discuss the author’s influences and motivations, relating everything to current events to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of our contemporary world.
