Promotional Information

"This pioneering book provides fascinating case studies that are vital in understanding negotiation strategies in this ever-changing world of terrorism. The authors set the example that one should never assume an end result in hostage negotiations, even with the terrorist extremist. A must read for all hostage negotiators." -- Lt. Jack Cambria, Commanding Officer, NYPD Hostage Negotiation Team "A path breaking contribution to this critical field. The authors' insights and prescriptions--informed by cutting edge negotiation theory and relevant hostage cases--will help save lives in future crises and enhance states' capacity to bring all their resources to the table when dealing with today's terrorists." -- LTC Joe Felter, Director of the Center for Combating Terrorism at the US Military Academy (West Point) "Dolnik and Fitzgerald make a strong empirical case that even terrorists who claim to be more keen on dying than we are on living are rational negotiators. They show that lives can be saved even in seemingly hopeless situations if proper negotiation techniques are applied. The book should be on the shelf of every hostage-negotiator and, even more so, on the shelves of those who reject negotiations with terrorists out of hand." -- Prof. Alex P. Schmid, Director, Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St. Andrews. "Through strong and profoundly researched case studies translated into practical guidelines, the authors show us that the pointblank decision 'Not to negotiate with terrorists' should belong to the past. Dolnik and Fitzgerald make very clear what negotiation is about and what the possibilities and advantages of negotiating are--even with new terrorists. This book is a must, not only for negotiators, but definitely for the decision makers as well." -- Chief Inspector Heidi Nieboer, Coordinator CT-negotiation, The Netherlands
