3.0 out of 5 stars Speckled Onion., 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Army Faction Volume 1: Projectiles for the People, The (Paperback)
What the other reviewers don't mention, and which I think may be relevant to potential buyers of this book, is that it is written very much from the 'far-left' perspective. The 'anti-imperialist' propaganda comes thick & fast throughout (eg- all the deaths of r.a.f. members become police/state 'murders', regardless of the conflicting accounts of each case) but it is possible to separate fact from possible fiction and gain much useful info from this highly detailed reference book. Readers who want to gain a more balanced perspective on this subject may wish to cross-reference this work with others, such as Stefan Aust's which takes a much more liberal-conservative line.
"Projectiles" scores well over the other books on the R.A.F. by 'setting the scene' in some detail for political/social unrest in 60's/70's W. Germany. Also, the choice of illustrations (many are left-wing posters/fliers/publication images) is unusual & interesting.

this is a good point and I am surprised at the negative ratings this review has received. The book comes from a specialist publisher of anarchist books, and is undeniably a sympathetic account of the German far-left.
