No peace after the storm - Book by Ulrike Heider
Lively and stirring, Ulrike Heider tells 50 years of her personal history as an exciting contemporary story. We experience up close how liberating the political and cultural awakening of the late 1960s and early 1970s was for her as a young woman.
Heider describes highlights, criminalization and signs of decay of the anti-authoritarian protest movement, draws milieu images of anarchists, spontaneous people and K-group members.
Whether it's about SDS meetings, experiments with free love, the Frankfurt University occupation, street battles or squatting, the author's memories are always both intimate and critical. And so we also encounter mackerel, subject mentality and anti-Semitism.
Heider's analytical incorruptibility is also impressive when she tells of her second home in New York, where new life experiences reflect some of her earlier experiences. Encounters with left-wing intellectuals, Holocaust survivors, and anarchists of various colors, including Noam Chomsky, open the view to the other America.
