- The terrorists' terrorist: Vincent Browne's interview with Dominic McGlinchey
- Heskin, Ken
- Ken Heskin considers from a theoretical and concrete perspective the attitudes and motivations of terrorists through the medium of an unusual interview with an active terrorist, published in November 1983. The object is to combat some of the myths concerning the character of individual terrorists and to prevent discussion of the question from being seen as simply a succession of essentially inexplicable, dreadful deeds perpetrated by unseen evil forces. The interview, as explained by the author, reveals the complex forces which motivate a modern terrorist.
