17n's Philosophy of Terror: An Analysis of the 17 November Revolutionary Organization (PSI Guides to Terrorists, Insurgents, and Armed Groups)by Ioanna K. Lekea.
Synopses & Reviews
Were the members of N17 individuals with high moral principles, as they claimed, who did their best to protect the civilians who happened to be within their field of operations? Or were they simply violent guerillas who prioritized successful assassinations of their targets at any cost? The textual analysis of this book addresses these questions and studies N17 from inception to the time when its members were arrested, providing a uniquely thorough examination of the organization manifestos and its correlation to the group's ideology and actual practices.
N17's Philosophy of Terror: An Analysis of the 17 November Revolutionary Organization first outlines the political and ideological framework of 17Ν and then describes their terrorist strategy and tactics. The authors consider these operations in the context of the manifestos that followed the terrorist acts, and conclude the work by addressing the events following the apprehension of 17N members—the trial, the verdicts, the appeal trial, and the conclusion of appeal trial.
This book uses a cross-disciplinary approach to examine the creation, development, ideology, and practice of the Marxist terrorist group 17N.
• Provides an in-depth analysis of the organization's manifestos and how they correlated with N17's ideology and the practices the group used
• Analyzes whether N17 had moral and ethical principle rules as a group or were little more than an outspoken group of criminals
• Supplies three appendixes: N17 operations and their results in chronological order; N17 manifestos in chronological and thematic order; and N17 arrest milestones
