Globe-trotting journalist to speak at UW

From a UW press reelease:

Steve LeVine, a veteran foreign affairs journalist, will be the keynote speaker at the 12th annual Susan B. Horton Cone Family Distinguished Lecture Friday, Oct. 3, at the University of Wyoming.

LeVine’s presentation, “Russia, Pipelines and the Great Game,” begins at 4 p.m. in the College of Education auditorium. The lecture, sponsored by the UW Department of History, is free and open to the public.

Currently the chief foreign affairs editor for BusinessWeek, LeVine has also reported for several prominent publications — including Newsday, Newsweek, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal — over the past 18 years.

LeVine is author of two books, including the recently-released “Putin’s Labyrinth: Spies, Murder and the Dark Heart of New Russia,” which examines the powerful men of Russia and their use of murder and other eccentric actions to maintain their power. His first book, “The Oil and the Glory: The Pursuit of Empire and Fortune on the Caspian Sea,” was released in October 2007.
