Kidnapped and other dispatches
SOURCE: Reporters sans frontières (RSF), Paris

Alan Johnston was the correspondent of the BBC in Gaza when he was kidnapped on 12 March 2007. He was released 114 days later. This book is an account of his captivity and his reflections since his return to freedom.

Alan Johnston was the last western journalist living in Gaza. When he was kidnapped, millions of people throughout the world expressed their anger and determination to see him set free.

This volume brings together his finest journalism from Gaza, Afghanistan and beyond, including a moving account of his time in captivity and his reflections since his return to freedom, together with photographs of the global campaign for his release.

’And in my captivity I learnt again that oldest of lessons. That in life, all that really, really matters, are the people you love’. Alan Johnston
