The Church of England and the Home Front, 1914-1918 : Civilians, Soldiers and Religion in Wartime Colchester by Robert Beaken( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Church of England is popularly believed to have had a bad First World War. This book challenges that tired orthodoxy. It examines the relationship between parish churches and the Army during the war, using the important garrison town of Colchester as a case study. Colchester in 1914-18 was a microcosm both of English society and of the Church of England, in all their diversity. The presence of the Army also meant that wartime experiences and trends which were noticeable elsewhere in England were sharply felt in Colchester. For the generation of Britons who lived through the Great War, Christianity was an important part of their culture, world view and, in many instances, personal lives. To understand life on the home front during the war, it is vital to understand the part played by Christianity, and particularly by the parishes of the Church of England.0
Hizb'allah in Lebanon : the politics of the western hostage crisis by Magnus Ranstorp( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The abduction of Western citizens by Hizb'Allah was motivated either by internal organisational requirements or in alignment with Syrian and Iranian interests, and mechanisms for the resolution of the hostage-crisis were subject to continuous interaction between Hizb'Allah, Iran, and Syria influenced by internal Lebanese, regional, and international events. The Western responses to the hostage-crisis showed limited effectiveness as the crisis management techniques were poorly adjusted in timing and direction to the actual crisis environment. With the exception of the French response, the overall employment of Western crisis management techniques showed disregard for the opportunities and constraints in the fluctuating relationship between Syria and Iran as well as the political environment within Lebanon which the Hizb'allah operates and exists. This was clear by their failure to rely on either Iran or Syria as the only channel in negotiations over hostages without regard to their individual ability to exert its influence over the Lebanese movement in accordance with shifts in their ties to Hizb'allah's command leadership between 1987-1991 and to the status of the Iranian-Syrian relationship over time, as displayed by the friction between 1986-92. This study provides a new approach in the study of terrorism by merging a case-study of the dynamics of the Lebanese hostage-crisis with an evaluation of Western responses through crisis management techniques in order to more closely resolve the dilemma of the fulfilment of these states' duty to protect their citizens taken hostage abroad, without major sacrifices in the conduct of foreign policy
Survivor of the long march : five years as a PoW, 1940-1945 by Charles Waite( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nothing prepares a man for war and Private Charles Waite, of the 2/7th Queen's Royal Regiment, was certainly ill-prepared when his convoy carrying supplies of petrol and ammunition on its way to Dunkirk took a wrong turning near Abbeville. They met half a dozen German tanks on the road and saw hundreds of German soldiers marching across fields towards them. 'The day I was captured, I had a rifle but no ammunition.' Charles lost his freedom that day in May 1940 and didn't regain it until May 1945 when he was finally picked up by the Americans, having walked 1600km from his prison camp attached to Stalag 20B in East Prussia

Out of the silence : memories, poems, reflections by Terry Waite( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the height of the Lebanese civil war in the 1980s over 100 foreign civilians were taken hostage by Islamic Jihad. As the Archbishop of Canterbury's special envoy, Terry Waite conducted several successful missions to negotiate the release of numerous hostages. But in January 1987, while on one of his many visits to Beirut, he was captured himself. Imprisoned for nearly five years, four of them in solitary confinement, he was chained, beaten, frequently blindfolded, and subjected to a mock execution. In this moving sequence of poems and reflections Terry Waite recalls the highs and lows of his life, both during that ordeal and throughout the happier years of humanitarian work that have followed. They give us a glimpse into the depths of faith, hope and love that sustained him through that intense time of suffering. They also take us into memories of his later life, reminding us of the joy to be found in meaningful work, and in the humanity we share with those around us. Out of the Silence not only offers a rare insight into one man's experience in the throes of a bitter conflict of the past; it also bears witness to the enduring power of forgiveness, truth and reconciliation in the face of adverse forces still at work in the world today

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This stunningly designed volume contains 40 moving and comforting prayers of peace, each with its own introduction that expands on the prayer's themes. All these prayers and reflections were broadcast on BBC Radio 4's much-loved, early-morning spiritual slot, Prayer for the Day, and each one is introduced by a well-known member of the faith communities. The book takes a multi-faith approach, with meditations on peace from the different Christian denominations, as well as from Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist contributors. This is a timely contribution for today's troubled world, and one that will resonate with the Christmas season of peace in which it is published."--Publisher's website

SOLITUDE : memories, people, places by Terry Waite( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some people long to find it, others long to escape it. But, whether we welcome or dread it, solitude is something we all experience in different forms at different points in our lives. After enduring nearly five years of solitary confinement, in cruel and terrifying conditions, Terry Waite discovered that he was drawn to find out more about the power of solitude in the lives of other people. The result is this haunting book, in which he recalls his encounters with people who have experienced some very different ways of being solitary: among them the peaceful solitude of remote and beautiful places; the unsought and often unnoticed solitude of lonely people living in the midst of busy cities; the deceptive solitude of those living in the twilight world of espionage; the enforced solitude of the convict and the prisoner of war; and finally the inescapable solitude of those who are drawing near to death. Through all these encounters, and through the memories and reflections they trigger in the author's mind, we see how solitude shapes the human soul - and how it can be a force for good in our own lives, if we can only learn to use it well
This house believes it is time to talk to Al Qaeda( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of the audience at the first Doha Debate of the Fourth Series called on Western governments to negotiate with Al Qaeda. Former British hostage Terry Waite led the argument for dialogue with what he described as "the extreme edge of insurgency in the Islamic world". He said that building inroads into organisations like Al Qaeda required "courage and perseverance" on the part of governments in the West and the Arab world. Mr. Waite's co-speaker was General Asad Durrani, the former head of the Pakistani Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). Opposing the motion was Dr Laith Kubba, who was a spokesman for the former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Al Jaafari. He argued that the legitimacy that such dialogue would bring could only cause further damage. Dr Kubba called Al Qaeda "fundamentally different from any other terrorist group and nothing more than a death machine". Dr Kubba was joined in opposing the motion by Adam Holloway MP, a former British army officer, journalist and now a Conservative parliamentarian serving on the House of Commons Defence Select Committee
