Abstract:

Jillian Becker took herself into the midst of war to write this book. She journeyed for many days on roads known to be mined and ambushed, spent nights in rooms with glassless windows while shells exploded on all sides, and explored the ruins of PLO strongholds in the wake of bombardments, in order to find documents, testimony, and clues of all kinds to the history of the PLO. The resulting book cements and enhances the reputation she established as a world authority on terrorism with her famous work Hitler's Children : The Story of the Baader-Meinhof terrorist Gang. A unique study of a terrorist organization from inception to demise, it was published in seven European languages and Japanese, was chosen as Newsweek's Book of the Year in 1977, and was serialized in major daily newspaper in Britain and Japan.
