In the Soviet Archives


Sheila Fitzpatrick is a historian of modern Russia: in the 1960s, she went to Cold War Moscow to research the Bolshevik revolution. She revisits the era in her new memoir A Spy in the Archives and explores the line between research and spying, trust and betrayal. In conversation with Dr Paula Michaels.
