    Hello Simon. My name is Mark Linder, and I work for the Sans Frontieres unit of Bell Pottinger. We are active in the conflict transformation space… which is how I found (and am enjoying) your book. Would you be interested in coming along to meet with a few of us and some clients to talk about your insights about Gudrun Esslin and RAF, and what are the components of extreme protest or insurgency? This is just an idea. Please write back if you’d like to talk.
