Entries in Galbraith (1)


My Son, My Son

Douglas Galbraith's new book tells the story of how his children were abducted to Japan by his wife.  He hasn't seen them since they disappeared from his life in 2003. 

He returned home to St Andrews from a work trip to London to find the house empty and his four and sis year old sons gone. 

Legal moves to bring them back to Scotland were not successful, and this book records his frustration and loss.

As well as describing the profound impact of losing his children so suddenly, he explores the issues of relations between parents and children in a wide-ranging discussion, sub-titled "how one generation hurts the next".

He considers recent and historic cases of child abduction, and discusses a wide range of related issues in a thought-provoking study.
