Robert Stephenson will present his fascinating new book about Moscow in the years immediately following the collapse of the USSR.

This excellent collection of photographs of mid-1990s Moscow provides a unique view of daily life in Russia’s capital city during the turbulent early years of transition to market capitalism. Through his own original photographs and supporting narrative, the author shows how the old Soviet capital and its inhabitants went through a period of epochal change as Russia opened its doors wide to new influences, ideas and possibilities. To find out more about the book, read our recent review.

The rebuilt Cathedral of Christ the Saviour rises again on its former site, 1995.

He began his international career in March 1992 in Moscow, where he lived and worked for five years before going on to lead a UK government team dedicated to supporting civil service reform around the world.

The evening will include a presentation by the author, with an audience Q&A followed by a short reception. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signature.
