I only found two reviews of the book, one strongly positive and one strongly negative. Both seemed to imply that the book was not impartial but rather slanted in favor of the movement, to the delight of one of the reviewers and to the dismay of the other. Nevertheless, I decided to gamble a couple of bucks and purchase the book. I'm glad I did.
Jeffery Tayler is an excellent writer, as one would expect of a contributing editor of The Atlantic, and he does a superb job of describing the Femen movement and its history in a short book that can be read in a few hours. His treatment of the movement is as impartial as one can expect of an author who spent many hours with the movement's members and leadership. On the negative side, he mentions for example, that the movement has been accused of being ruled by the iron fist of its leader, Inna Shevchenko, and of being a dictatorial organization dedicated to fighting dictatorial organizations.
Whatever your opinion of the small, anti-patriarchal Femen movement and its tactics, I highly recommend that you read this ebook if you want to know more about it. This is the only publication that I am aware of that discusses the Femen movement in depth. -- Jack Quinn
