An edited reprint of texts which had first appeared in late 1969, arguing (in a new introduction) that an “internationalist strategy of supporting, joining, and spreading wars of liberation of the oppressed peoples in order to defeat U.S. imperialism applies to the home front not only in terms of Black and Brown rebellion, but also, though in a different way, it necessarily determines the strategy of white revolutionaries of the oppressor country”. The introduction concludes that “the document and its circulation is one of the few direct expressions of inner struggle within Weatherman between those supporting concepts advocated in the Object and the more spectacular partisans of various anarchist, ‘Debrayist’ and purely militaristic lines of thought”.
