Excellent radical history of the Vietnamese national liberation struggle, with a particular emphasis on unmasking the fratricidal violence unleashed by Ho Chi Minh’s “communists” against revolutionaries. Published by Solidarity (UK), a pioneering anti-state Marxist group.
A loving intellectual biography of Giorgio Cesareano, whose work was vital to the radical current of the Italian autonomous 70s, but who died in 1976, before its explosion.

They were part of the global phenomenon of “diffuse urban guerrilla” – extremists who found themselves outside of the Marxist-Leninist groups (RAF, Red Brigades, etc.) due to their radical critique and refusal of spectacular violence.
