Illustrated with color photographs throughout depicting the milieu of squatters (Hausbesetzer). "A Hausbesetzer... are what Germans like to call Randgruppen, groups existing at the edges of society. In part, they are at the edges by choice. But they also exist at the edges because Germany still is a more conservative and monolithic society than most people realize." (Colberg).
