Summary
In Stalling for Time, the head of the FBI's groundbreaking Crisis Negotiation Unit takes readers on a heart-pounding tour through many of the most famous hostage crises of the past thirty years. Specially trained in non-violent confrontation and communication techniques, Noesner's unit successfully defused many potentially volatile standoffs, but perhaps their most hard-won victory was earning the recognition and respect of their law enforcement peers
Summary
A longtime FBI hostage negotiator recounts many of the high-profile cases he worked on--from hijackings and prison riots to religious-cult and right-wing militia standoffs--and explains how such failures as Ruby Ridge and Waco could have been averted
