Date: Wednesday 17 October 2012
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building

The horrifying genius of Soviet communism was the system’s ability to get the silent majority in so many countries to play along without much protest. The techniques used to do this are the central topic of this lecture and Iron Curtain, Anne Applebaum’s new book.
Anne Applebaum is Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs at LSE IDEAS for 2012-13.
