Winning Back the Sky: A Tactical Analysis of Terrorism

David G. Hubbard, Author Saybrook Publishing Company $14.95 (140p) ISBN 978-0-933071-04-9
The first skyjackers, whose goals were ostensibly money or escape to another country, were observed to be of a certain psychological type: weak, ineffectual, physically uncoordinated, given to infantile dreams. When terrorists took to skyjacking, claims Hubbarda psychiatrist and author of The Skyjackermany of them fit the same profile. Those that do not, he contends, come from societies that foster many of the same qualities. Hubbard presents in-depth portraits of several hijackers, discusses the roles that airline crews and passengers have played and could play in terrorist skyjackings, and offers his prescription for ending such crimes, involving three elements: ""find out what the terrorists want and don't give it to them""; curb the media; and stop regarding each human life as sacred.
