Item description for Direct Action: Memoirs of an Urban Guerrilla by Ann Hansen...

Direct Action chronicles the thrilling fast-paced action of the Guerrilla group that blew up the political activist scene of the 80's. Hansen and her Anarchist group Direct Action were responsible for numerous dramatic political acts, including the bombing of the Litton Systems plant in Toronto. After legal protest actions failed to stop Litton from making guidance systems for Cruise missiles, Direct Action defended the Earth, explosively. Additionally, Hansen with other radical feminists showed the Red Hot Video chain just how hot their illegal films depicting rape could become after being firebombed.

Ann Hansen served seven years in prison and is now quite at home in Vancouver with her three horses, three dogs, one cat and a bird.

Reviews - What do customers think about Direct Action: Memoirs of an Urban Guerrilla?

Very interesting little book  Mar 24, 2007
I thought this book was quite interesting, and for many of the reasons another reviewer seemed to hate it. There's no accounting for taste and there's room in here for all us freaks. The narrative of the book is sometimes a little simplistic, but given that it's by a revolutionary and not a professional writer, it's easy to cut her some slack. Overall, the plotting moves right along so the writing doesn't bog anything down. Getting some insights into what a person goes through to end up bombing a cruise missile facility is quite fascinating. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a peak into other, real worlds, that run in parallel to the mainstream.
Laughable bio of spoiled brat "terrorist"  Jun 18, 2002
This book was so bad I couldn't finish it. It starts out with the author - another spoiled brat from the middle class - becoming a "revolutionary" and seeking the Red Army in Europe circa late 1970's. How does she make her contacts? By lying down and allowing herself to be raped to get the information. The book is all downhill from there. Less a memoir of a former radical turned yuppie crying out for redemption, this is a cry for help from a deeply disturbed, hypocritical woman who simply found more of her kind and decided to blow things up, maiming innocent people in the process. A great how-to primer on being one of society's complete losers.
