Behind the News: Hostage Takers, Hardback Book

Behind the News: Hostage Takers Hardback

Part of the Behind the News series


Go behind the headlines to explore the wider background of news stories that are making a major impact across the world.

In Hostage-takers, we ask who are today's hostage-takers and what do they want?

What drives them to extreme action? We look at how captivity and stress affect the victims and ask whether we should negotiate with hostage-takers.

How can lives be saved and how can hostage-taking be prevented in the first place?
