REVIEW OF STATE, RELIGION, AND CHURCH
Upon review of the first English-language edition of State, Religion and Church - a new academic journal published by the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration - in which April's translation of Uzlaner's article on "Pussy Riot" appears, sociologist David Martin wrote: "I am very impressed with the journal's presentation and content. The level of English is exceptionally high - indeed better than many Anglo-American journals. The articles have a higher philosophical/theological content than would be normal in Western Europe, but that simply gives the journal a distinctive character."
