Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Synopsis:

In "Ransom", Ann Hagedorn Auerbach explores two years in the high-stakes realm of international kidnapping, beginning with the stunning 1995 kidnapping of an American couple on the banks of a Himalayan river in Kashmir. Seamlessly moving between this story and others equally heart-wrenching, the book shows how the post-Cold War global economic climate has encouraged the increasingly lucrative criminal enterprise of kidnapping for ransom. Exposing a shadowy underworld inhabited by private kidnap negotiators, unsuspecting travelers, and an array of professional kidnappers including former rebels, former terrorists, and even former soldiers, Auerbach uses hundreds of never-before-reported facts culled from interviews worldwide to disclose one shocking detail after another about this global crime, including trends that potentially threaten every businessperson and tourist.
