An Elephant Editions reprint I feel fully comfortable giving five stars. I had never heard of Alexandre Jacob before this was printed, but his story is one close to my heart. Like many of the more well-known agents of propaganda by the deed, Jacob lives the fast life and pulls no punches when it comes to his commitment to anarchy. Another story worth preserving.
