(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Terry Waite's personal account of his harrowing experiences as a hostage in Beirut. This book gives a fascinating insight into human life on the edge - the things people are willing to do to each other, and what it feels like to be treated in that way. Terry's endurance in the face of unimaginable suffering and long days spent in solitary confinement makes for a compelling tale. This new edition includes an updated foreword and new final chapter conveying just a few of the many and varied experiences that came Terry's way post-release, and conveying his passionate engagement in Middle East issues since his release 25 years ago, an issue of just as much relevance today as ever.


AUTHOR: Terry Waite is well-known as a humanitarian campaigner and author. In the 1980s he was Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie's Assistant for Anglican Communion Affairs and travelled to Lebanon to try to secure the release of four hostages, including journalist John McCarthy. He was himself held captive between 1987 and 1991, and remains actively involved with hostages and their families as well as working with those who find themselves on the margins of society.
