Terrorism is a thoroughly researched collection of information on how to prevent, avoid, cope with, recover from, and analyze criminal kidnapping and hostage-taking. Filled with the stories of successful hostages, along with statistics from intelligence files and international reports, this book is intended as a scholarly yet practical approach to this world-wide issue. The author interviews well-known former hostages, such as David Dodge, General and Mrs. James Dozier, Richard Grover, Gordon Kennedy, Larry and Sis Levin, Roy Libby, Bruce Olson and Lloyd Van Vactor. Based on fifteen years of research and Quarles' experience as a negotiator for missionaries taken hostage, Terrorism is a book that is appropriate for political theorists as well as those in the field.
