Críticas:

Praise for "THE MAN WITHOUT A FACE: THE UNLIKELY RISE OF VLADIMIR PUTIN"

"Gessen has shown remarkable courage... [An] unflinching indictment of the most powerful man in Russia." -"The Wall Street Journal"

"[Gessen] shines a piercing light into every dark corner of Putin's story... Fascinating, hard-hitting reading." -"Foreign Affairs"

"Illuminating... It is with [the] explosive revelations that Gessen truly excels... An electrifying read from what can only be described as an incredibly brave writer." -"Columbia"" Journalism Review"

"Part psychological profile, part conspiracy study. As a Moscow native who has written perceptively for both Russian and Western publications, Gessen knows the cultures and pathologies of Russia... [and has] a delicious command of the English language... A fiercely independent journalist... Gessen's armchair psychoanalysis of Putin is speculative. But it is a clever and sometimes convincing speculation, based on a close reading of Putin's own inadvertently revealing accounts of his life, and on interviews with people who knew Putin before he mattered." -"The New York Times Book Review"

"Absorbing." -"The New Yorker"

"Powerful and gracefully written." -"The San Francisco Chronicle"

Praise for "WORDS WILL BREAK CEMENT: THE PASSION OF PUSSY RIOT"
Named a Best Book of 2014 by NPR and "The Guardian"
Urgent damning Much here will be new to the American reader. All of it is infuriating. Alexander Nazaryan, "The New York Times"
Remarkable Masha Gessen [is] one of the most important activists and journalists Russia has known in a generation disquieting, moving, and closely reported. David Remnick, The "New Yorker"
"Simply put, this is the best, most urgent book I've read about art this year. Through rigorous research and furiously fine storytelling, Masha Gessen places the band's founding members unflinchingly into context, revealing the worlds they move between (of Russian activists, intellectuals and prisoners) and reminding us that art really can change the world if you're an artist with the guts to try." NPR
The fullest account so far of the Pussy Riot story A moving object lesson in the power of art perhaps especially messy and exuberant art to rise above repression and have the last, cement-breaking word. Sara Marcus," Los Angeles Times"
"Valuable for its insights into the modern cultural history of Russia, with all its idealistic muddles, dead-ends and false starts ideal for those curious about the country behind the Games. "The Economist"
What makes someone into a dissident? Why do some people give up everything home, family, job to embark on a career of protest? Gessen set out to answer this question in this excellent short account. "The Washington Post"
A compulsively readable book that explains in unflinching terms the tragedy that is modern Russia "Words Will Break Cement "is an instant classic, destined to take its place with Solzhenitsyn s writings about the Gulag... one comes away marveling at the courage of the Pussy Riot members making a stand against tyranny while demonstrating the willingness to pay a steep price "New York Journal of Books"
Riveting [Gessen] is a sharp observer of people and events, and she tells Pussy Riot s story in a lively style that is somehow casual, precise, and powerful all at once. She has written a terrific book, a compelling story of three creative women who courageously attacked a repressive regime by disrupting the spectacle of its propaganda. "The Rumpus"
"The significance of "Words Will Break Cement."..is its demonstration that Pussy Riot's rambunctious confrontations with the authorities are the result of several years of growing frustration with Putin's rule...The genius of Pussy Riot...has been to employ guerilla street theater and a sense of humor along with unbridled profanity all the better to skewer the pretensions of power and privilege Putin insists are his due..."Words Will Break Cement "makes clear that Pussy Riot is more than just a small group of disorderly anarchists." "New York Times Book Review"
Masha Gessen s history of founding Pussy Riot members Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich provides some crucial context for understanding the motives and means of the group Gessen s account helpfully highlights the lineage of art and protest that gave rise to Pussy Riot.. Pussy Riot is what art endangered looks like; their songs are salvos; their hits are strikes. " "" "Boston Globe""
[A] fascinating insider account As Russia waves sabers at the Ukraine and considers a new cultural policy that explicitly rejects multiculturalism and tolerance, the young women of Pussy Riot increasingly seem not like radicals but prophets. Vivid and empathic. " Seattle Times"
A compelling and eloquent account of current events. " "The Christian Science Monitor""
Gessen offers a lively and sympathetic portrait of the three women at the center of the storm keenly observed and often moving. " The Guardian"
[An] angry, clear and intimate look at the women behind Pussy Riot. "The Sunday Times"
"Compelling and highly readable. It s an artist biography, a meditation on revolutionary art and gender politics, an absurdist courtroom drama and defiant commentary on the cultural climate of Gessen s homeland a place for which the author obviously has enduring love and concern. "Eugene Weekly"
Pussy Riot is a global cause celebre, and now Gessen prickly, frank, precise, and sharply witty provides the first in-depth look at this story-in-progress "Booklist "(starred review)
"Based on interviews with Pussy Riot members (including those arrested and others in the group), their families, friends, and attorneys, Gessen puts their protest and arrests in the context of post-Soviet, Putin-era Russia s culture and society Recommended to readers in feminist studies, those following Putin s Russia, and all who study protest art.

Reseña del editor:

The story of Pussy Riot, punk icons and Russian dissenters, and the untold story of their infamous trial and on-going global significance

On February 21st 2012, five members of an obscure feminist post-punk collective called Pussy Riot staged a performance in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Dressed in their trademark brightly coloured dresses and balaclavas, the women performed their song 'Punk Prayer - Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!' in front of the altar. The performance lasted only 40 seconds but it resulted in two-year prison sentences for three of the performers - and has turned Pussy Riot into one of the most well-known and important protest movements of the last five years. This necessary and timely book is an account of the Pussy Riot protest, the ensuing global support movement, and the tangled and controversial trial of the band members. It explores the status of dissent in Russia, the roots of the group and their adoption - or appropriation - by wider collectives, feminist groups and music icons. Masha Gessen has unique access to the band and those closest to them. Her unrivalled understanding of the Russian protest movement makes her the ideal writer to document and explain the rage, the beauty and the phenomenon that is Pussy Riot.

Descripción Riverhead Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From National Book Award winner Masha Gessen, the heroic story of Pussy Riot, who resurrected the power of truth in a society built on lies. On February 21, 2012, five young women entered the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. In neon-colored dresses, tights, and balaclavas, they performed a punk prayer beseeching the Mother of God to get rid of Putin. They were quickly shut down by security, and in the weeks and months that followed, three of the women were arrested and tried, and two were sentenced to a remote prison colony. But the incident captured international headlines, and footage of it went viral. People across the globe recognized not only a fierce act of political confrontation but also an inspired work of art that, in a time and place saturated with lies, found a new way to speak the truth. Masha Gessen s riveting account tells how such a phenomenon came about. Drawing on her exclusive, extensive access to the members of Pussy Riot and their families and associates, she reconstructs the fascinating personal journeys that transformed a group of young women into artists with a shared vision, gave them the courage and imagination to express it unforgettably, and endowed them with the strength to endure the devastating loneliness and isolation that have been the price of their triumph.
