Arkady Ostrovsky: Russia--The Modern History of a Troubled, Enigmatic World Power
Arkady Ostrovsky is an award-winning journalist who covers all things Russian for The Economist. On today's Thinking Aloud, he talks with host Marcus Smith about Russia over the last 25 years from Gorbachev to Putin--the subject of his new book "Inventing Russia." Ostrovsky is less than optimistic about Russia's current and future state but still finds the nation to be a fascinating, enigmatic, and bewildering place.—Original airdate: 6/24/2016
