Abstract

Discusses the rise in kidnappings from 6,000 a year in the 1980s to between 20,000 and 25,000 worldwide in the late 1990s. Illustrates which countries are most likely for kidnaps to happen in and the various outcomes for victims (some of whom were killed). Lays down various techniques for the avoidance of kidnapping and suggests there is no room nowadays for complacency.
