Monkeywrenching

This book, “Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkeywrenching” (7.2MB) is specifically aimed at those committing sabotage in defense of the environment. It is somewhat old, and US-biased. However, it contains vast amounts of useful information for anyone considering taking direct action. I particularly like the sections on disabling vehicles – we know how much the police rely on their vans!
