Based on extensive research, this book remains the essential study of the Angry Brigade, a group of urban guerillas, who, between 1970 and 1972, used guns and bombs on embassies of repressive regimes, police stations and army barracks, boutiques and factories, government departments, and the homes of cabinet ministers as well the attorney general and the commissioner of the metropolitan police. An avalanche of police raids followed, culminating in the "Stoke Newington 8" conspiracy trial—the longest criminal trial in British legal history—which is throughly discussed in this volume. Updated with a comprehensive chronology of the "Angry Decade" and new illustrations, this new edition also adds introductions by Stuart Christie and John Barker, two of the defendants, who discuss the political and social context of the movement and its long-term significance.

Book Description PM Press, 2010. PAPERBACK. Condition: New. 1604860499 New. No dust jacket as issued. Brand New! Support Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 288 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. You can't reform profit capitalism and inhumanity. Just kick it till it breaks. Angry Brigade, communiqu? Between 1970 and 1972, the Angry Brigade used guns and bombs in a series of symbolic attacks against property. A series of communiqu?s accompanied the actions, explaining the choice of targets and the Angry Brigade philosophy: autonomous organization and attacks on property alongside other forms of militant working class action. Targets included the embassies of repressive regimes, police stations and army barracks, boutiques and factories, government departments and the homes of Cabinet ministers, the Attorney General and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. These attacks on the homes of senior political figures increased the pressure for results and brought an avalanche of police raids. From the start the police were faced with the difficulty of getting to grips with a section of society they found totally alien. And were they facing an organization or an idea? This book covers the roots of the Angry Brigade in the revolutionary ferment of the 1960s, and follows their campaign and the police investigation to its culmination in the Stoke Newington 8 conspiracy trial at the Old Bailey the longest criminal trial in British legal history. Written after extensive research among both the libertarian opposition and the police it remains the essential study of Britain's first urban guerilla group. This expanded edition contains a comprehensive chronology of the "Angry Decade, " extra illustrations and a police view of the Angry Brigade. Introductions by Stuart Christie and John Barker (two of the "Stoke Newington 8" defendants) discuss the Angry Brigade in the political and social context of its times and its longer-term significance.
