Christine Adams, professor of history, wrote an essay that appeared in TIME magazine's Made by History column on April 16. In the essay, titled "History Makes Clear the Risk of Appeasing Putin," Adams offers examples from history that suggest that "autocrats are seldom satisfied with concessions designed to assuage them." 

Adams is a former American Council for Learned Societies and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation fellow at the Newberry Library and author of “The Creation of the French Royal Mistress: From Agnes Sorel to Madame DuBarry” with Tracy Adams (Penn State University Press, 2020).
