Editorial Reviews

?This thorough and very logical analysis of hostage-taking incidents in Western Europe during the period 1970-1981 uses the Black September' siege at the Munich Olympics in 1972 as a detailed case study. The author, an English international consultant and expert on terrorism, sees developing patterns of similarity in most terrorist incidents. He offers no simple solutions, but discusses factors to be considered by those responsible for dealing with terrorist cases.?-Booknotes
