Hizb'allah in Lebanon : the politics of the western hostage crisis by Magnus Ranstorp( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 25 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 internationalevents. 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 overal

Post-traumatic stress by Stephen Regel( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Post-traumatic stress and its associated disorders, including Post-traumatic Stress disorder (PTSD) can develop after exposure to one or more terrifying events. It is a severe and ongoing emotional reaction to an extreme psychological trauma, such as a death or a threat to life, serious physical injury, or threat to physical and/or psychological integrity. The book begins with a description of PTSD and other related problems often experienced by survivors, and a short history of developments in the field. Information on assessment, theory, research findings, and treatment procedures are provided. Further chapters reflect new theoretical thinking and directions in the field of trauma. It discusses the types of support that should be provided at an early stage for people and families affected by a sudden traumatic bereavement (e.g., homicide), and presents this information in a practical and accessible way. Though mainly intended for sufferers of post-traumatic stress, and their families and friends, it will also be of interest to the general reader. The book will also be an invaluable resource for professionals, particularly those who want to know about the psychological impact and management of trauma in a variety of contexts, such as general practitioners, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses and those in the voluntary sector

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
The Church of England and the home front, 1914-1918 : civilians, soldiers and religion in wartime Colchester by Robert Beaken( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 7 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

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

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"November 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of Terry Waite’s release from captivity in Beirut. 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."--Publisher's description
