Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural differences among group members, whether they belong to multinational business teams or culturally diverse families, are frequently the sources of misunderstanding and conflict. Using examples from a variety of cultures to illustrate techniques for resolving these conflicts, Conflict Across Cultures: A Unique Experience of Bridging Differences demystifies the complex ways in which misunderstandings can arise as a result of cultural differences. The authors describe and identify the processes, tools and skills that make for successful conflict resolution. Most importantly, the stories at the heart of the book are culturally and geographically diverse, applicable for groups in a wide range of settings: business, law, social service, government, non-government agencies, academic and at home.Conflict Across Cultures is an excellent bridging book. It is both a celebration and explanation of culture as a set of geographies, something that cumulatively surrounds and grounds us and that, like it or not, we carry inside us. -Peter S. Adler, PhD, president of The Keystone Center, past president of SPIDR, and co-author of Building Trust: Twenty Things You Can Do to Help Environmental Stakeholder Groups Talk More Effectively About Science, Culture, Professional Knowledge and Community WisdomConflict Across Cultures: A Unique Experience of Bridging Differences comes from modern conflict resolution scholars from Canada, South Africa, Japan and the US who describe the latest concepts and framework for successful conflict resolution. With these new techniques in hand comes new understanding of the roots of cultural conflicts, exposed in a series of stories which come from a range of groups and locales. College-level students of international studies will find this perfect for classroom debate and study.-The Midwest Book Review, Bookwatch, March 2007Michelle LeBaron and Venashri Pillay are extraordinarily honest as they share situations in story form and present a new generation of resolution techniques in Conflict Across Cultures. They describe processes and help build the skills necessary for successful conflict resolution. They present us with a new framework for understanding others-a map for making progress through differences that can otherwise overwhelm us....I found the advice in this book honest, practical and above all immensely challenging....Perhaps every president, prime minister and monarch in the world today should be forced to read it. Wouldn't that be a good idea to give peace a chance?-Marion James, Sunday's Zaman 2/25/08ContentsAcknowledgmentsPreface1 Crossing Boundaries2 Conflict, Culture, and Images of Change3 Culture: Exploring the River4 A Journey Toward Cultural Fluency5 When the Waters of Culture and Conflict Meet6 Capacities and Skills for Intercultural Conflict Resolution7 A Map Through Rough Terrain: A Guide for Intercultural Conflict Resolution8 Full Circle Reflection: Learning from OurselvesReferencesIndex
