From Red to Green: Interviews with New Left Review

By Rudolf Bahro
Verso/NLB, 1984
208 pp.

Extensive interviews, held between 1980 and 1983, with an East German dissident, imprisoned for his Dubcek-like ideas, finally released and in effect exiled to West Germany. A critic of capitalism, a self-proclaimed utopian socialist, he believes in a protest movement against nuclear and ecological disaster that would cut across class lines, thus negating the elemental force of the class conflict. He argues for a defense policy that would not threaten the U.S.S.R. and hopes that German Social Democracy will wither away. A quick and intelligent summary of some of the essential views of the Greens-views which probably have resonance even among those who do not vote for the Greens-or live in Germany.
