Confessions of a Terrorist
By

Rating
P: Who is the real terrorist in this room? M: What're you saying? In a claustrophobic concrete cell, two men face each other across a bare table. One is a wanted terrorist, the other a British intelligence officer. But this is no ordinary interrogation, and as they talk deep into the night and violent secrets are revealed, the line between interrogator and confessor begins inextricably to blur. Who, then, is the real terrorist? And will they pay for their guilt in blood?

Reviews

'On a breathtaking journey through the intricacies of a counter-terrorism interrogation, Richard Jackson asks us to confront one of the most difficult truths of our time: that to identify "the terrorist" is to look in the mirror and see oneself.' Elizabeth Dauphinee, author of The Politics of Exile 'Extraordinarily intense ... A book that's too important not to read.' Morning Star 'A page-turning and thought-provoking book' Richard Falk 'Does a remarkable job at capturing the deadly spiral of violence characterized by state and non-state terrorism today ... The dialogue is a tour de force.' Critical Studies on Terrorism 'Goes beyond the prevailing narratives of terrorist behaviour and delves into the thought processes of a terrorist, giving us unique insights into the "mind" of a terrorist.' Pambazuka 'Confessions of a Terrorist offers an outstanding contribution to the academic and fictional literature on terrorism.'
