Lecture | November 12 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 270 Stephens Hall
A paradox associated with Václav Havel lies in that fact that he wrote in Czech but achieved world renown, and gained a global audience, through the translation of his writings into English (and other languages).

The security and intelligence services play a powerful role in Vladimir Putin's court and are also important instruments of his rule at home and his policies abroad.
