Vladimir Putin and the Rise of Russia
Stephen Berk

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: In the space of almost 18 years, an obscure and minor member of the KGB became the president of Russia and has made his country, once again, a major player in international diplomacy. How did this happen? Who and what brought him to power? What and why has he done certain things, and what does this mean for the United States and Israel?
