"This everything-you-always-wanted-to-know-but-were-afraid- to-ask book on air piracy, terrorism, and airport security tackles hundreds of pertinent issues, ranging from how to survive a hijacking to what governments can and ought to do before and after an incident." Library Journal
This highly readable work provides a fascinating history of international airline terrorism, and examines the ways in which airlines and governments are attempting to cope with the problem. St. John provides a detailed account of the evolution of air piracy, and profiles the eight types of hijackers and how they can be recognized. Current safety measures and policies are analyzed for countries throughout the world, and a coordinated seven-stage plan is proposed to combat future terrorism. Other topics addressed include the hijacked plane and its victims, responses, and government policies that often encourage terrorism.
