Informadores da PIDE: Uma Tragédia Portuguesa
Esta obra analisa o modo como o regime ditatorial português do Estado Novo e a sua polícia política contaram com portugueses para denunciar outros, de que forma os recrutaram e porque aceitaram muitos colaborar com a polícia, prejudicando e destruindo vidas. Revela também que muitos se candidataram a informador da PIDE/DGS junto da tutela do Ministério do Interior ou de outros organismos do Estado, mas também que muitos menos foram aceites por essa polícia para o serem. Com recurso a exemplos, demonstra de que maneira uma cultura de denúncia abalou o sentido ético em Portugal, marcando a sua História de forma trágica.
