Constructive Conflicts: From Escalation to Resolution Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highly regarded by instructors as the most comprehensive and insightful textbook on conflict resolution, Constructive Conflicts has been significantly revised and updated in this third edition. The new edition builds on the strengths of the first two, especially its organization around the different stages at which conflicts emerge, escalate, and resolve. Kriesberg's analysis utlizes diverse theoretical perspectives and data and is relevant for strategies that a variety of people can employ to foster the resolution of conflicts.

Book News Annotation:

Kriesberg (emeritus, sociology, Syracuse U.) synthesizes the literature on conflicts and conflict resolution. He offers chapters that systematically move from discussion of the basis and emergence of social conflicts, through escalation and de-escalation of conflicts, to issues of conflict mediation, negotiation, and transformation. Throughout the discussion he considers real world examples related to apartheid in South Africa, labor-management relations, the Cold War, the Palestine-Israel conflict, and more. This revised and update edition has been updated to reflect current debates related ethical issues, ideological and religious developments, and the changing role of the United States in the world.
