The Baader-Meinhof group, or the Red Army Faction, as they called themselves, carried out nearly 30 years of violent confrontation with the West German state. Stefan Aust's book on the RAF has recently been republished, and he talks to Chris Laidlaw about what drove this group of young, middle-class people to kill and kidnap in protest against the injustices of capitalism.
