Terror Or Love? The Personal Account of a West German Urban Guerrilla
By Michael Baumann
Grove Press, 1979, 127 pp.
Rambling recollections of West Germany's terrorist scene, by a working-class youth who broke away from it and is now in hiding. Styled as an indictment of contemporary society, the book is largely an expression of unfocused anger-with a good measure of self-pity beneath the flip surface. The book acquired considerable notoriety when it appeared in Germany in 1975 and the police made an ill-conceived attempt to confiscate and suppress it.
