"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.
While there are many trained crisis negotiators around the world, almost none of them has ever had contact with a terrorist hostage-taking incident. Further, the entire training program of most hostage negotiators focuses on resolving crises that do not take into consideration issues such as ideology, religion, or the differing sets of strategic objectives and mindsets of ideological hostage takers. This is especially true with regard to the terrorists of the "new" breed, who have become less discriminate, more lethal, and more willing to execute hostages and die during the incident. Further, many of the paradigms and presumptions upon which the contemporary practice of crisis negotiation is based do not reflect the reality of the "new terrorists."The main focus of this book is on the detailed reconstruction and analysis of the two most high-profile cases in recent years, the Moscow theater and the Beslan school hostage crises, with a clear purpose of drawing lessons for hostage negotiation strategies in the future.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The new terrorists have read our manuals, and learn from previous incidents. But they still have 'rational' goals. While they are 'ready to die' that does not mean it is their preferred option.
Negotiation is not about making deals with hostage takers. It is about influencing their behavior. The negotiator has three tasks:
Keep the situation calm;
Buy time. (For security forces to gather personnel and equipment for a tactical rescue or preferably for the situation to be resolved peacefully. Either the terrorists walk out or the tactical intervention force goes in. In the end the choice is up to the terrorist.
This book won't impress chickenhawks who watch a lot of Rambo movies. This book should be read by negotiators, tactical teams and more importantly police and government managers who may think looking tough is more important than being effective.
The research on the Beslan tragedy does bring into question a lot of the material provided by Russian sources in John Gidducks useful book Terror at Beslan: A Russian Tragedy with Lessons for America's Schools While that book remains useful it appears the rape and drug use stories about the hostage takers may have been fabricated by the Putin government.
I will be re-reading that book critically soon.
