This is the first book that takes a long-term perspective of the aftereffects of hostage-taking, by asking questions such as: Were there enduring effects of such an experience, and what might those effects be? How did survivors view their experience through the lens of time? Were there any positive effects associated with the experience? Campbell examines how hostage victims perceive their victimization, and how they go about the task of rebuilding their assumptive world. In sharing the intimate details of this process, the hostage survivors have allowed us to be close observers in their efforts to redefine their world and themselves.
