This article explores the history, various types, and the nature and extent of corporate kidnapping. It also provides explanations for the increase in these types of kidnappings and the various responses to this problem by governments and organizations. The article also shows some of the inherent problems associated with the effective reporting and monitoring of these criminal events throughout the world. Recommendations for effective reporting, data gathering, and monitoring are also discussed. http://search.proquest.com/docview/195768607?accountid=2745
