The ï¬rst in a two-volume series, this is by far the most in-depth political history of the Red Army Faction ever made available in English. Volume 1 presents all of the manifestos and communiqués issued by the RAF between 1970 and 1977, from Andreas BaaderÊ¼s prison break, through the 1972 May Offensive and the 1975 hostage-taking in Stockholm, to the desperate, and tragic, events of the “German Autumn” of 1977. The RAFÊ¼s three main manifestos—The Urban Guerilla Concept, Serve the People, and Black September—are included, as are important interviews with Spiegel and le Monde Diplomatique, and a number of communiqués and court statements explaining their actions. All events and documents are extensively researched and placed in historical context by the editors.
