Contents : Prior to the sixties, hijacking of aircraft was never considered a serious problem. During those days, many countries not only offered political asylum to the hijackers, they even showered them with honours and bravery awards. As a result, the hijacking menace soared to towering heights and it further spread to include activities like sabotage against aircraft, attacks, false alarm calls etc., making the air travellers and airlines as the prime targets of terrorists. Ultimately, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) started taking a serious view of the situation and evolved a number of precautionary measures to safeguard the security of civil airliners against terrorist attacks and against other acts falling under the category of 'Unlawful Interference of Aircraft. The Book "Aviation Terrorism" deals with various problems associated with "Aviation Terrorism", and it presents a true account of events by citing a large number of incidents and detailed data pertaining to such acts which help in analysing the problem in depth. This gives an opportunity to the readers to know the real facts of the menace. The true experiences of a pilot whose aircraft was hijacked on two occasions and that of an air-hostess who became the victim of an hijacking incident have also been included. Strictly speaking the word "Aviation Terrorism" Consists of Two terms Viz. ' Aviation' and 'Terrorism'. 231 pp. N° de ref. de la librería 32219

Excerpt: ... his earnest desire to raise the tone of the young officers Sir Charles Malcolm stopped their being allowed ship's grog, and substituted wine, which he procured from a firm--' Sholton and Malcolm'--on favourable terms, and also got the officers the privilege of obtaining outfit and uniform at prime cost from Englaud, through the Army Clothing Department. These were well meant acts, but raised the first cry of jobbery against him, which was the chief reproach he ever had to his name; aud though it was a slander, yet he showed weakness in taking the part of the firm he had patronized, when they evidently did try to screw out of the officers a profit by supplying inferior articles; and it ended by a great row, and his giving up the pet scheme under the advice of Government. He was a fine, gentlemanly, kind man, and was certainly the greatest friend we ever had; his rule was just and mild, but dignified; the transition of the old to the new style of things was wisely and gradually done, and with much tact and discrimination. He also fostered and established the scientific branch of the Service on a sound footing; infusing a tone of zeal and enthusiasm that had the happiest effect, and was able to work wonders by his personal and kindly influence. Latterly he fell into bad health, and had less cordial support from Government. He showed weakness in his administration from failing powers, and was superseded when it was decided to introduce steam into the Service more generally." The contrast between the character of the first Superintendent and that of the second, was very marked. Captain Oliver was a seaman of the Ben bow school, caring little for dress and those amenities in his intercourse with the officers of the Service, which go so far to smooth the rough path of daily official routin...

Book Description:

C.R. Low's work has never been surpassed as a history of the maritime arm of India's foreign policy. This is a facsimile reprint of the two-volume 1877 edition.
