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.
