Turning Money into Rebellion: The Unlikely Story of Denmark's Revolutionary Bank Robbers

by Gabriel Kuhn Author

In May of 1989, on a quiet street in Copenhagen, police discovered the apartment that had served for years as a hideaway for Denmark’s most notorious 20th-century bank robbers.The members, who belonged to a communist organization and lived modest lives in the Danish capital stolen millions of dollars in spectacular heists, then sent it to Third World liberation movements—in particular, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. One of the most puzzling and captivating chapters from the European anti-imperialist milieu of the 1970s and 1980s, Turning Money into Rebellion is the first-ever English account of the story, covering the events from Middle Eastern capitals and African refugee camps to the group’s fateful last robbery, which earned them a record haul, but left a police officer dead. A compelling tale of turning radical theory into action, concerning analysis and strategy as much as morality and political practice. (Short Discount)
