This afternoon on NPR Talk of the Nation:

Interview with a guy kidnapped by the TALIBAN.

Jere Van Dyk, The Taliban's 'Captive' For 45 Days

Summary by NPR (July 1, 2010):
In 2008, Jere Van Dyk set off from Kabul, Afghanistan, to write the authoritative book on the Taliban. He never imagined he'd be taken their prisoner. That February, he became only the second American journalist captured by the Taliban. In Captive (his book), he tells his story at greater length.

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128244068

His book, Captive, by Jere Van Dyk:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/080508827X/

He was not held for sexual reasons. Some of his captors were "reptilian". This interview will be available to listen to at 6pm today (Eastern time) by means of on-line audio. He talked a lot about the psychological effects of captivity including the Stockholm syndrome. In other words, I survived in part because I complied with everything asked of me.

I found this broadast extremely interesting and helpful. I listened as someone who was held captive as described in this thread.

Jaycee Dugard. I know she's not a male, but her case is kind of the prototype kidnap survival story now.

http://www.amazon.com/A-Stolen-Life-Memoir/dp/1451629192/

She is going to try to sue the Federal Government.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/07/jaycee-dugard-lawyers-parole-phillip-garrido_n_1754110.html

I have started reading her book because I also experienced kidnap. I'm just a few pages into it so far. But what I see so far is that when she "returned" she felt a lostness as to how her experience fit into the world around her. That's something I experienced. I still experience that and it became a mega-problem after I remembered the details of my kidnap experience.

I also observe that it's her unusual determination that was part of her survival.

Here's another story about a kidnap victim. Also female but it seems relevant to this thread:

This is relevant too:

I'd heard this guy's story first in the newspaper, under his real name, before I knew he'd been / was here.

Elizabeth Smart

Kidnapped about a dozen years ago. Tonight she is to be interviewed on NBC TV at 10 Eastern (9Central).

One of the questions: Were there times when you could have escaped?
