Mary Page talks with Peter Reddaway, professor emeritus of political science and international affairs at George Washington University. Peter Reddaway taught at the London School of Economics and directed the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies. He has been one of the first and foremost scholars of the Soviet Union to examine the role of dissidents and human rights activists in that country, and since then what has become the Russian Federation. Peter Reddaway is author of many books on Soviet and Russian affairs, including The Dissidents (2020); Russia’s Domestic Security Wars (2018); The Tragedy of Russia’s Reforms, with Dmitri Glinski (2001); Russia’s Political Hospitals, with Sidney Boch (1977); and Uncensored Russia (1972).
