What People are Saying About This

Sandra B. McPherson

Clearly, A BOOK FOR OUR TIME . . . valuable for public and professional consideration. Law enforcement officials faced with increasing public security situations will find rational and empirical bases for analyzing and responding to crises. This book will be AN EXCELLENT TEACHING TEXT FOR GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES IN PSYCHOLOGY AND PUBLIC POLICY and should also be a resource for high school social studies curricula. As a forensic psychologist, I was particularly aware of the use of contextual analysis and complexity based theory and recommendations; as a long time member of the peace community, I was impressed with the emphasis on alternatives to violence without sacrificing practicalities or losing sight of the necessity for appropriate action.

SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING in the mental health and law enforcement fields. The editor has assembled a knowledgeable group of authors to discuss terrorists, the terrorized, and the tools of terrorism, as well as crisis negotiations and ethical concerns. . . . These authors offer significant information that is not only ENLIGHTENING TO MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS, but that is frequently FASCINATING READING as well.
