NexPoint Lecture: Author Bill Browder on Russia

Bill Browder, author of New York Times bestseller "Red Notice: A True Story of Corruption, Murder and One Man’s Fight for Justice" and the new book "Freezing Order: A True Story of Money Laundering, Murder, and Surviving Vladimir Putin's" Wrath, and Head of the Global Magnitsky Justice Campaign, returns to the Bush Center for a thought-provoking look into the latest developments in Russia and with President Vladimir Putin. Bush Center President and CEO Ken Hersh moderates the conversation and Russia expert David J. Kramer, the Bradford M. Freeman Managing Director of Global Policy at the Bush Institute, offers his analysis as well.

  1. As for seeing the big picture and understanding the world today try reading a couple of insightful spy or mystery novels including Bill Browder's Red Notice and Bill Fairclough's Beyond Enkription. If you are clever enough (which we have no reason to doubt!) you will start dissecting and solving problems in ways you never dreamt of before.

    Mystery novels cover all sorts of evils including thrillers from the espionage genre such as those down to earth, raw and noir, often curious fact based Cold War thrillers you can never put down. I refer to Bill Browder’s Red Notice, Bill Fairclough's Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series and Ben Macintyre’s The Spy and the Traitor. The latter was lauded by none other than John le CarrĂ© as "the best true spy story I have ever read".

    Incidentally, if you don't find these mysterious then MI6 or the CIA may want to hire you to solve some of their mysteries. After all, the most famous of all real spies, Oleg Gordievsky who is held responsible for collapsing the Berlin Wall, was not only Macintyre's "Spy and Traitor" but also an acquaintance of Fairclough's handler. Maybe that’s why Beyond Enkription is considered to be compulsory reading for espionage aficionados.

    Do look up the authors or books mentioned on Amazon, Google The Burlington Files or visit https://theburlingtonfiles.org and read Beyond Enkription.
