Justin Lifflander, author of “How Not to Become a Spy: A memoir of love at the end of the Cold War” and resident of Russia for more than 27 years, will provide a personal perspective on how Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev came together to sign the first treaty that eliminated an entire class of nuclear missiles, and how that treaty was implemented at the grass-roots level.The story begins during a frantic period at the US embassy Moscow in 1987-1988, when the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces treaty was created. It continues with life in the provincial Russian town of Votkinsk – birthplace of Tchaikovsky and the finest nuclear missiles ever made. Americans and Soviets worked together there to build trust and lasting relationships while verifying the treaty. The details of the inspection process — which covered bases in Europe and the UK, including Greenham Common, and a continuous monitoring facility at the Votkinsk missile factory — will be revealed. Accompanied by anecdotes about the personal interaction on the front line of treaty implementation, the lecture will provide a fascinating history lesson and possible model for future cooperation.Following the lecture, which will be accompanied by a slide show, there will be a question and answer session.Copies of Lifflander’s book, “How Not to Become a Spy” will be available for purchase and signing.LOCATION AND TIMEThis lecture will be held in the museum lecture theatre at 14:00 on Saturday 16 May 2015.TICKETSThis lecture is free of charge however we do ask that you pre-book a free ticket as seats are limited.
