Granny Made Me an Anarchist: General Franco, The Angry Brigade and Me is the 2002 autobiography of Scottish anarchist Stuart Christie.[1]

Details[edit]

Christie recounts his radicalization through the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and Committee of 100, and his eventual imprisonment over his involvement in a plot to blow up the Spanish fascist leader, Generalissimo Francisco Franco. He also deals with allegations that he later played a part in bombing campaigns in the United Kingdom organized by the First of May Group and the Angry Brigade, and writes of the time he spent in prison awaiting trial before he was acquitted. The book also explores the role played by anarchists during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s.
