Summary
  • Discusses the wave of anti-Putin sentiment that has surged in Russia since his reelection in 2011, including interviews with members of the infamous Pussy Riot, top opposition leaders, and Kremlin insiders. -- Provided by publisher
  • As 2011 came to a close, in what was a watershed moment, 100,000 took to Moscow{u2019}s freezing streets to protest the election victory of United Russia {u2013} Vladimir Putin{u2019}s party {u2013} amid widespread allegations of corruption and vote-rigging. A few months later, Pussy Riot hit headlines around the world when they were arrested following their anti-Putin demonstration in a Russian Orthodox cathedral. The vicious battle for Russia{u2019}s soul continues to this day. In the first book to take the reader straight to the beating heart of the opposition movement, journalist and long-time Moscow resident Marc Bennetts introduces a new generation of Russian dissidents, united by their hatred of Putin and his bid to silence all political adversaries. We meet a bustling cast of urban youth working to expose the injustices of the regime and a disjointed bunch of dissenters {u2013} from {u2018}It Girl{u2019} hipsters to 21st-century socialists. Featuring rare interviews with everyone from Pussy Riot and top protest leaders to Kremlin insiders, Bennetts{u2019} compelling narrative is a high-octane account of the politics and subterfuge of modern-day Russia. --Provided by publisher
