Synopsis: Book by Cicippio, Joseph, Hope, Richard W.
From Library Journal:
Cicippio was chief financial officer of the American University of Beirut (AUB) for a number of years before he was kidnapped by Islamic extremists in September 1986. Newly married to a Lebanese woman and a devout convert to Islam, he was taken hostage on the AUB campus and moved around the Lebanese countryside for more than five years before his release in Damascus, Syria. Cicippio's recitation of his long ordeal is very similar to those of other hostages, e.g., Terry Anderson's Den of Lions ( LJ 9/1/93) and Brian Keenan's An Evil Cradling ( LJ 7/93). Aside from his wondering aloud about the ultimate wisdom of various government policies regarding negotiations with the hostage takers, this book is more remarkable for its revelation of a man's grace and perseverance under pressure than any new expose or revelation from the hostage ordeal that dominated the Middle East in the late 1980s. Enthusiastically recommended for large libraries with inclusive collections in this area.
