Christopher Andrew talked about his book The World Was Going Our Way: The KGB and the Battle for the Third World -- Newly Revealed Secrets from the Mitrokhin Archive, published by Basic Books. In 1992 the late Vasili Mitrokhin, a former senior KGB archivist, defected to the West and brought with him classified files he had smuggled out of the archives during his time with the KGB. These documents were the basis of his collaboration with Christopher Andrew. In this book Mr. Andrew discusses the role of the KGB in the Third World at the time of the Cold War and analyzes how it has affected the current state of the world. He feels that the KGB was winning the war against America not on America’s turf or on their own, but rather through their clandestine efforts to gain power in the Third World. He reveals new evidence from Vasili Mitrokhin’s secret archives to support his assertions that the KGB encouraged the global sentiment of anti-Americanism that continues today. Mr. Andrew answered questions from members of the audience. close
