Ron Jacobs Reviews Projectiles for the People

Ron Jacobs, author of The Way the Wind Blew: a history of the Weather Underground, has reviewed Projectiles for the People, Volume 1 of The Red Army Faction: A Documentary History.

You can check it out on the Counterpunch website:

"The editors of this work, J. Smith and André Moncourt, have created an intelligently political work that honestly discusses the politics of the Red Army Fraktion during its early years. Their commentary explains the theoretical writings of the RAF from a left perspective and puts their politics and actions in the context of the situation present in Germany and the world at the time. It is an extended work that is worth the commitment required to read and digest it. Not only a historical document, the fact that it is history provides us with the ability to comprehend the phenomenon that was the RAF in ways not possible thirty years ago"

Well ain't that nice!
