Informative read about Carlos, it wasn t total propaganda like I expected I went into this book with the intent of reading it from a Marxist perspective to see how much there is to respect about Carlos The author presents him as a reckless, vain, professional mercenary whose politics are confused at best, a facade at worst Perhaps in his youth he was sincere about revolution, but by the end of his career it s obvious that he is in it for the glory and the money, and to save his own skin This Informative read about Carlos, it wasn t total propaganda like I expected I went into this book with the intent of reading it from a Marxist perspective to see how much there is to respect about Carlos The author presents him as a reckless, vain, professional mercenary whose politics are confused at best, a facade at worst Perhaps in his youth he was sincere about revolution, but by the end of his career it s obvious that he is in it for the glory and the money, and to save his own skin This is the image the author intends you to see, and even with a good dose of skepticism and reading between the lines, he is probably right It s possible that there isto Carlos than this book would suggest, but I doubt it Carlos is basically an adventurist opportunist Che wannabe.Probably the most interesting parts of this book from a leftist perspective is the picture it paints of the constant terrorism from Palestinian liberation groups in the 60s and 70s It s amazing how little security there was on airplanes for instance This book also tarnishes the myth of Carlos using extreme cunning to evade capture Carlos was basically reckless and stupid, and the only reason he wasn t arrested sooner is because he had the protection of governments, and the extreme tension of the Cold War caused government agencies to tread very lightly when it came to matters diplomatic This book covers everything shown in the miniseries about Carlos, so I would recommend it to anyone curious about the details of events, or interested in knowingprecisely who all the characters are Well written and a good look at the Jackal Would have likeddetail.

I had seen documentaries on Carlos and read some other books about Carlos but I don t think I ever had read what the eventual outcome was for Carlos This book provides that information I hesitate to call it an ending because although Carlos is currently incarcerated in France, he will be eligible for parole in 2020.Ilich Ramirez Sanchez a.k.a Carlos the Jackal, is a Venezuelan national who inspired by all of the student uprisings and nationalists movements in the 1970 s, joined Palestinian ter I had seen documentaries on Carlos and read some other books about Carlos but I don t think I ever had read what the eventual outcome was for Carlos This book provides that information I hesitate to call it an ending because although Carlos is currently incarcerated in France, he will be eligible for parole in 2020.Ilich Ramirez Sanchez a.k.a Carlos the Jackal, is a Venezuelan national who inspired by all of the student uprisings and nationalists movements in the 1970 s, joined Palestinian terrorist training organizations in order to foment what he called an International Socialist Revolution.What was most surprising was how little success he actually had he caused a lot of injury, death and havoc without achieving much in the way of personal or political change I guess given the legend, I expected so muchIt seems like a life wasted since he spent almost all of it on the run.In the end, much of the book shows how political machinations and considerations behind the scenes play such an important role in how terrorists are handled For example, while Carlos was in Khartoum, France wanted to extradite him or grab him but due to considerations and relationships with the Sudanese government, it took quite some time to happen.Carlos also was sheltered by East Germany, Syria and Libya during the Cold War years but as the Iron Curtain fell and relations thawed between East and West, he found it increasinglydifficult to find places to hide It is amazing that he managed to evade capture while at the same time living a jet setting lifestyle.A good, easy to digest book that provides insights into terrorism and the reasons why individuals choose to involve themselves in it It also gives succinct answers to why releases of hostages and political negotiations take so long and are so complicated What really hit home for me is how little value is placed on victims and how difficult it is for victims to get any justice The book outlined how utterly devastated victims ended up economically, physically, mentally and emotionally.For those interested in this topic and this individual, this book is a great, easy, succinct biography I enjoyed it and it did provide me with some new insights and the story.so far A Good biography of the mysterious Jackal Worth a read Though it gets bigger down in minute detail every so often. .FREE PDF ⚈ Jackal: The Complete Story of the Legendary Terrorist, Carlos the Jackal ☥ Now in paperback, the biography of the th century s most potent and ruthless terrorist Carlos the Jackal With exclusive revelations about his life, his missions, and his ultimate capture Infatuated with himself, and living the delusinal idealisms he shared with his father, Carols the Jackal executed poorly planned acts of terrorism and lived under the protection of governments who believed he could be used to do their dirty work He wanted the world to see him as a revolutionary, in the same sense Che Guevera was seen He wanted it so bad he did not care about any cause or revolution His indulgance in his image, his bad body appeal to young women, his love for guns and alcoho Infatuated with himself, and living the delusinal idealisms he shared with his father, Carols the Jackal executed poorly planned acts of terrorism and lived under the protection of governments who believed he could be used to do their dirty work He wanted the world to see him as a revolutionary, in the same sense Che Guevera was seen He wanted it so bad he did not care about any cause or revolution His indulgance in his image, his bad body appeal to young women, his love for guns and alcohol, and boasting his world revolutionary experience, meantto him than any cause His means were criminal in nature His cause was a front for psychopathic narcissism The irony is that his demise came about when the goverments who would have liked to use his services realized that even as far as terrorists go, he was useless Generally interesting but a tad boring I enjoyed the evolution of the washed up revolutionary Carlos is a pretty silly character The book also made me realize that frank is a fucking turd And that planes were highjacked a lot in the70s Pretty interesting read Gives a lot of insight into the origins, rise, and eventual fall of one of the worlds most notorious terrorists Dispells a lot of the myths surrounding Carlos and what he did and did not do A really good read.
