"This collection is not simply a documentary of the West German revolutionary . . . it is more important for the insights it provides into the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities of waging armed struggle within the context of a wealthy, well-resourced, Western capitalist state . . . In our own context, it is likely that future conditions of radical social change, and certainly revolutionary struggles, will more closely approximate those engaged by the RAF in 1970s West Germany than the much more influential examples of Russia in 1917 or Spain in 1936." Jeff Shantz, author, "Upping the Anti""

Can't be faulted for the documentary material,much of it re translated or in English for the first time,very comprehensive.
Problem is they write from an anarchist perspective,which means they think that violent action is more or less fine so long as it's directed against the right (as far as they're concerned) targets.Far too uncritical of the violent left of the time,notably it's attitudes to killing people and it's confusion-to put it mildly-between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
Great bibliography too.If you're interested, try vol.1
