Auteur: Christie, Stuart
Titel: Granny Made Me an Anarchist (2007)
Sub titel: General Franco, The Angry Brigade and Me

Stuart Christie is the rarest of revolutionaries a committed freedom fighter and a gentle warrior who can also spin a cracking good yarn. From the working class streets of Glasgow as a wee lad to the gaols of fascist Spain as an 18-year-old anarchist, Christie draws his readers into the thick of things, on the move and on the run. The result is a compelling portrait of both a man and a time. He became one of Britain's most famous anarchist in 1964 when he was arrested for smuggling explosives in a plot to assassinate Spanish dictator, Francisco Franco. Charged with "Banditry and Terrorism," he served three years of his twenty-year sentence before international pressure (from Bertrand Russell and Jean Paul Sartre among many others), as well as a note from his Mum, secured his release. Five years later, he stood trial in London for alleged involvement with Britain's Angry Brigade, an urban guerilla group, but was this time acquitted. He is the cofounder of Anarchist Black Cross, Black Flag magazine, and Cienfuegos Press. He currently publishes and distributes books and films through Christie Books.
