Product Description
 
Both more and less than a band, Pussy Riot is continually misunderstood by the Western media. This book sets the record straight.
After their scandalous performance of an anti-Putin protest song in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the imprisonment of two of its members, the punk feminist art collective known as Pussy Riot became an international phenomenon. But, what, exactly, is Pussy Riot, and what are they trying to achieve? The award-winning author Eliot Borenstein explores the movement's explosive history and takes you beyond the hype.Both more and less than a band, Pussy Riot is continually misunderstood by the Western media.
