    1. This short book of letters, statements, and tributes surrounding the Pussy Riot situation in Russia was originally put out as an eBook and circulated the internet. It is a quick but important read.What is freedom? How do you know for sure that you will get access to rights you are supposed to have? How far can you take a viewpoint, an opinion, a statement? These are important questions in any country, and I've felt them lately in the country I live in, a country that used to represent freedom fo [...]


    2. The main body of this book is a transcript of letters written while in custody by the three women, and court statements by them and their lawyers - as well as some prosecution witnesses. This part reminded me very much of the pamphlets published about English witchcraft trials - in fact, one hostile witness referred to Pussy Riot's performance as a 'witches' ritual' - but the difference here is that this book also gives voice to the accused women in this case. At the end of the book is a series [...]


    3. Probably 4.5. Wonderful report of the trial of the three girls in Moscow with articulate statements both from them and their lawyers--to little avail, of course.



    4. This was really easy to read and totally enlightening. Masha, Nadya, and Katya are stunningly articulate women. Their letters from prison and statements in court were forthright, well-worded, and hilariously ironic. The extracts from court were the most shocking, however. The fabrication from witnesses, the use of religious feeling as proof of a crime and the blatant bias of the judge. Pussy Riot's defence attorneys, however, all three of them, gave incredible closing statements. It was like rea [...]




    5. Learning more about this Feminist collective from Russia is probably essential reading now for Americans. After hearing many here pronouncing Putin as a "strong leader" and the "right person for Russia", it only makes sense to study some of the dissidents who have been jailed and journalists who have been murdered (er passed away of various plutonium-related illnesses and other newer euphemisms for state sanction euthanasia. This small collection of letters, testimony, and song lyrics/poetry is [...]


    6. Excellent. This is a collection of letters, statements, song and poems written by three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, who became world renowned after staging a protest performance in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ. The three women, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Yekaterina Samutsevich spent over five months in a detention center for while awaiting trial for hooliganism. The main content of this book is their court room statements, defending and explaining their actions [...]


    7. Sehr beeindruckende und schockierende Zusammenstellung von kraftvollen, kühnen, sinnlichen Gedichten und Auszügen aus den Verteidigungsschriften von Pussy Riot, die deutlich machen, was für eine himmelschreiende Ungerechtigkeit diesen drei friedlichen Aktivistinnen widerfährt. Besonders beeindruckend ist, wie tief religiös Nadja, Mascha und Katja tatsächlich sind und wie ihr eigentlich respektvoller Protest tief verwurzelte Probleme der russischen Gesellschaft ebenso wie Putins gnadenloses [...]


    8. My issue with this book is that it is full of legal jargon and references to events that I'm not familiar with. A fair chunk of it is just excerpts from the trial. While there were definitely really good messages in the book it was bogged down with a legal system that as an American I know little about. If it had provided more footnotes or something for the ignorant this book would have been much stronger.


    9. This book is not a narrative about Pussy Riot, but rather a collection of letters, lyrics, poems, documents and statements surrounding the group's "Punk Prayer" protest in Moscow. It's an interesting collection of material that shines a light on the coziness of the Russian church with the Russian government -- and what happens when people, especially women, challenge that authority.


    10. Belki de hukuk terimlerinin fazlaligindan ve bu terimlerin yavanligindan olsa gerek kitaba kendimi oyle cok kaptiramadim. Ancak Rusya'nin gunumuzdeki politik cikmazini, sekulerligin onemini ve Ortodoks kilisesinin Rus halki uzerindeki etkisini anlamak ve Putin'i bir de kadinlarin gozuyle gormek icin okunmali derim.


    11. Composed of transcripts and letters from the defense team and members of the band this short book gives insight into the Putin regime from his opponents and reminds us all that art is an effective means of protest.


    12. Articulate positions and defenses by the imprisoned members of the Russian protest band, deftly and consistently using media critique and religious language. But the rest of the books sources are varyingly bad to blah.


    13. I like people who stand up to authority and I love punk music. Enjoyed the book but I get a feeling the writing is more by accident than an in-depth passion. Though I will say the treatment once arrested is dreadful on any scale.



    14. Loistava kirja omassa genressään. Ei siis varsinaista kirjallisuutta, mutta avaa mainiosti Venäjän tämän hetken oikeuslaitoksen tilaa.



    15. My feelings are probably cooled by what Pussy Riot is here on 11/16/14, which seems to be some kind of liberal marketing crap.


    16. Excellent book! If you care about feminism this is an awesome book for you! If you don't, this book is still a really good read. It's short and to the point!
