Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Crisis Negotiations: Managing Critical Incidents and Hostage Situations in Law Enforcement and Corrections, Fourth Edition, discusses the fundamentals of crisis management for crisis and hostage negotiators. It features the contributions of negotiators from all over the United States who share their experiences, lessons, successes, and failures. Much of the material in this book is also consistent with FBI teaching and practice.
The book first traces the history of crisis management. It then covers the elements of a crisis response team, the model of intervention in crisis/hostage negotiations, risk assessment in negotiations, communication in crisis negotiations, guidelines for negotiating with emotionally disturbed or mentally ill individuals, negotiating with suicidal persons, negotiating with special populations (e.g. juveniles, gang members, elderly), crisis negotiations in prisons and correctional facilities, and hostage dynamics. The book contains eleven chapters, each of which begins with an outline of learning objectives and concludes with discussion questions.
  • McMains and Mullins are leading authorities on crisis negotiations.
  • Learning objectives, discussion questions, and real-life negotiation situations expand on the text.

Review:

Leading authorities on negotiations present the result of years of research, application, testing and experimentation, and practical experience. Principles and applications from numerous disciplines are combined to create a conceptual framework for the hostage negotiator. Ideas and concepts are explained so that the practicing negotiator can apply the principles outlined.
