Shadow State: Murder, Mayhem and Russia’s Remaking of the West – Luke Harding
In conversation with Professor Matthew Flinders
Award-winning journalist Luke Harding exposes Russia’s espionage campaign of fake news, cyber crime and violence which is, he argues, rapidly undermining western democracy. From Salisbury to Helsinki, Washington to Ukraine, the Kremlin is attempting to reshape politics to its own ends. Expelled from Moscow when a foreign correspondent Harding explores the darkest implications of Russia’s covert influence on everything from Trump to Brexit.
