The main textbook charts the development of the field, evaluates successes and failures, and assesses key contemporary challenges. Comprehensively revised and updated, it identifies a new pattern of ‘transnational conflicts’ and argues for a response based on cosmopolitan conflict resolution.
The reader offers a rich and illuminating set of readings ranging from the seminal writings of the field’s founders to cutting–edge interventions by today’s leading exponents and practitioners of conflict resolution. Each part is framed by an editorial introduction so the reader can be used as a core teaching text or as the perfect companion volume to Contemporary Conflict Resolution Fourth Edition.
Together the two books provide an engaging and thorough introduction to the full scope of contemporary conflict resolution – a comprehensive resource for all students!
