In a lecture based on his bold and controversial new book Russia Upside Down: An Exit Strategy for the Second Cold War, Joe Weisberg (former CIA officer and creator of FX Network’s critically-acclaimed and Emmy-winning drama series The Americans) makes the case that America's policy towards Russia is failing – and we'll never fix it until we rethink our relationship. Weisberg suggests that we are fighting an enemy with whom we have few if any serious conflicts of interest, and he argues that we are fighting with ineffective and dangerous tools. Most of all, his book aims to demonstrate that our approach is not working. With our own political system in peril and continually buffeted by Russian attacks, he contends that we need a new framework, urgently. Russia Upside Down shows the stakes and begins to lay out that new plan, at a time when it is badly needed.
