One Family’s Response to Terrorism
A Daughter’s Memoir

Susan Kerr van de Ven

With a Foreword by Saad Eddin Ibrahim

Paper $19.95    |    978-0-8156-0954-4    |    2010

On January 18, 1984, Malcolm Kerr, president of the American University of Beirut and a respected scholar of Middle East politics, was shot in the back of the head as he stepped out of an elevator on his way to work.

One Family’s Response to Terrorism is a stunning portrait of the intimate way in which violence pulls lives apart, of an American family caught on the stage of Middle East politics, and of the moral choices required in seeking justice.
