Kidnap and Ransom: The Response

By Richard Clutterbuck

Faber, 1978, 192 pp.

Author of earlier books on terrorism and political violence, Richard Clutterbuck puts the recent rash of kidnappings and hostage-holdings in that context, gives thumbnail sketches of recent notorious cases, and makes sensible suggestions about how society can cope with the problem.
