Capitalists and Communists, America in Russia Part II
1933 to 1999 – FDR and Stalin to Clinton and Yelstin
Lecturer: Dr. Stephen R. de Angelis
After a 16-year hiatus in Russian-American relations, the governments of the United States and the Soviet Union cautiously reopened diplomatic presences in Washington and Moscow. Their common fear now was the rise of German fascism. With communism ever spreading, bilateral fears resulted in a protracted Cold War between America and the Soviet Union. Dr. Stephen R. de Angelis, who worked in business for 25 years before returning to Columbia University to earn his doctorate degree in Russian Studies through St. Petersburg University in Russia, will present a slide show along with his discussion. He has written 25 books, including the translations of the Diaries of Nicholas II.
