The long-awaited second volume of the first-ever English-language study of the Red Army Faction (RAF)—West Germany’s most notorious urban guerillas—covers the period immediately following the organization’s near total decimation in 1977. During this period, the RAF was in a state of regrouping and attempting to renew its ties to the radical left in response to the emergence of a new radical youth movement in the Federal Republic, the Autonomen. This reorganization was evidenced by the shifting of focus from freeing prisoners to fighting NATO. By examining communiqués and texts from 1978 up until the 1982 May Paper, the broader movement is examined and the possibilities and perils of an armed underground organization are contrasted to the more fluid and flexible practice of the revolutionary cells at that time. The history of the 2nd of June Movement (2JM), an eclectic guerilla group with its roots in West Berlin, is also evaluated, especially in light of the split that led to some 2JM members officially disbanding the organization and rallying to the RAF. Finally, the RAF’s relationship to the East German Stasi is examined, as is the abortive attempt by West Germany’s liberal intelligentsia to defuse the armed struggle during Gerhard Baum’s tenure as Minister of the Interior. Dancing with Imperialism will be required reading for students of the first world guerilla, those with interest in the history of European protest movements, and all who wish to understand the challenges of revolutionary struggle.

Screening the Red Army Faction: Historical and Cultural Memory explores representations of the Red Army Faction (RAF) in print media, film and art, locating an analysis of these texts in the historical and political context of unfolding events. In this way, the book contributes both a new history and a new cultural history of post-fascist era West Germany that grapples with the fledgling republic's most pivotal debates about the nature of democracy and authority; about violence, its motivations and regulation; and about its cultural afterlife. Looking back at the history of representations of the RAF in various media, this book considers how our understanding of the Cold War era, of the long sixties and of the RAF is created and re-created through cultural texts.

In 1970 a small group of West German revolutionaries decided to go underground, to set up safe houses, and learn the skills of the urban guerilla. They were the Red Army Faction. Seven years later, almost all of the original combatants were in prison or dead, yet, through their example, they had inspired a militant and illegal support movement, comrades willing to take up arms in defense of the prisoners. 1977 was to be a year of reckoning. Through daring attacks and devastating errors, the West German guerilla brought their society to the brink, mounting one of the most desperate and incredible campaigns of asymmetrical warfare ever waged in postwar Europe. That they failed is no excuse to not learn their story, to see who they were and what they fought for – and, most tragically, to bear witness to the lengths the state would go to silence them. This pamphlet is our very modest introduction to this story.

... investigates representations of politically motivated violence since the 1960s ... focuses on post-Wall representations of the Red Army Faction (RAF), Germany's oldest and most notorious 'urban guerilla' group, including fictional films, 'docu-fictions, ' literary sources, and a controversial museum exhibit ... An assessment of representations of the RAF in post-Wall discourses provides insight into the impact of National Socialism, the student movement, and the RAF on contemporary developments while laying the foundation for a fuller understanding of the current crisis of transmission triggered by the (re)unification process ... The RAF consciously deployed Holocaust iconography and aesthetic strategies central to fascism to create symbolically charged images linking contemporary events and politically motivated violence to Germany's National Socialist past. This link to the defining historical moment of German twentieth century history explains why artists have repeatedly turned to representations of the RAF to negotiate post-Wall narratives of German history and identity formation ... assessment of the post-Wall artifacts suggests that their conflicting symbolic values represent a crisis of transmission in which historical narratives and generational objects crucial to the New Left are questioned. The crisis over the legacy of New Left was triggered by the collapse of socialist regimes around 1989. The Fischer affair has become one of the most prominent examples, because it links contemporary politics and politicians to Germany's violent past, raising questions about the student movement's and the New Left's responsibility for and relationship to politically-motivated violence. Since the student movement and its violent aftermath serve as a central touchstone of German politics and culture, the current crisis of transmission challenges historical narratives crucial to German identity formation.

Terrorism and national security have been in the foreground of the nation's political landscape since the uncertain times brought on by the attacks of September 11, 2001. This collection of scholarly essays provides a chance to learn from the past by offering an analytic--and sometimes provocative--look at the inseparability of security and history. This work is divided into separate elements depicting security on the national and international levels. "Part One-The US and National Security," focuses on topics such as "Rank-And-File Rednecks: Radicalism and Union Leadership in the West Virginia Mine Wars," among others. "Part Two-International Terrorism," looks at violence overseas, such as "Beyond Victims and Perpetrators: Women Terrorists and Their Own Stories."

Blekingegade is a quiet Copenhagen street. It is also where, in May 1989, the police discovered an apartment that had served Denmark’s most notorious twentieth-century bank robbers as a hideaway for years. The Blekingegade Group members belonged to a communist organization and lived modest lives in the Danish capital. Over a period of almost two decades, they sent millions of dollars acquired in spectacular heists to Third World liberation movements, in particular the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). In May 1991, seven of them were convicted and went to prison. The story of the Blekingegade Group is one of the most puzzling and captivating chapters from the European anti-imperialist milieu of the 1970s and ’80s. Turning Money into Rebellion: The Unlikely Story of Denmark’s Revolutionary Bank Robbers is the first-ever account of the story in English, covering a fascinating journey from anti-war demonstrations in the late 1960s via travels to Middle Eastern capitals and African refugee camps to the group’s fateful last robbery that earned them a record haul and left a police officer dead. The book includes historical documents, illustrations, and an exclusive interview with Torkil Lauesen and Jan Weimann, two of the group’s longest-standing members. It is a compelling tale of turning radical theory into action and concerns analysis and strategy as much as morality and political practice. Perhaps most importantly, it revolves around the cardinal question of revolutionary politics: What to do, and how to do it?
