"A fascinating history of the German revolutionary left in the 1970s and
1980s. It powerfully situates the RAF within a broader orbit of
revolutionary politics and world events. It gives us the inside story of
how militants did and might engage with police, prisons, informants, media
and one another in the context of struggle. It is an exciting story, a
global story, and very much a story for today's movements."
editor of The Hidden 1970s
"Of all the revolutionary organizations to have been forged by the so-called sixties generation, the German Red Army Faction has been perhaps the most mythologized and maligned. Here at last is their story, told in their own words through “official” communications, comprehensively assembled and available for the first time in English translation. This is essential material for anyone wishing to know what they did, why they did it, and to draw consequent lessons from their experience."
