CHOICE Review

The subfield of peace and conflict resolution has engendered a sizable body of innovative work that cuts across traditional disciplinary and functional boundaries. This book, written by a sociologist with extensive experience in the field, combines theoretical insight and sound, practical advice for scholars and practitioners of conflict management and mediation. A strong feature of the book is its focus on the application of conflict resolution and mediation techniques across different cultures. The book has three major parts. In part 1, the author develops a theoretical framework for building peace. Part 2 deals with analytical approaches to training mediators, comparing and contrasting two models--prescriptive and elicitive. In the last part, the author describes experiments using the elicitive model. This book nicely complements many other recent books, e.g., Peter Ackerman and Christopher Kruegler's Strategic Nonviolent Conflict: The Dynamic of People Power in the Twentieth Century (CH, May'94), and Resolving International Conflicts: The Theory and Practice of Mediation, ed. by Jacob Bercovitch (1995). Recommended for upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses, faculty, and mediation practitioners. N. Entessar; Spring Hill College
