German translation of HOW TO SLAY A DRAGON published by Europa Verlag

In its pamphlet-like gesture, Mikhail Khorodkovsky’s short MANUAL FOR START-UP REVOLUTIONARIES is very reminiscent of Stéphane Hessel‘s „Time for Outrage!“. The German publisher Europa Verlag made it available in a special short version right in time for Munich Security Conference 2023 where Khodorkovsky has been invited as speaker.

The presentation of the German version of HOW TO SLAY A DRAGON will take place at the public event of the MSC Security and Literature Series 2023 with Khodorkovsky in Literaturhaus München on Thursday Feb 16 at 19:00. TICKET RESERVATION

Isn’t this one of the most pressing questions of our times? How can a totalitarian regime be put to an end? By whom? From the inside or from the outside? After that, who would come to power? And what would that power look like? And what should that power look like?

Far from any know-it-all attitude, Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s book HOW TO SLAY A DRAGON poses questions, uncomfortable questions that have been avoided in the West up to now, such as non-violence/ violence against a totalitarian ruler acting aggressively both internally and externally. Using the example of Russia Khodorkovsky derives the resulting options for action. The book does not want to provide recipes but to initiate a discussion overdue.

The full long version will be published in German translation as hardcover also for Leipzig book fair.
