Soon after the arrival of Doukhobors to British Columbia, new

immigrants clashed with the state over issues such as land ownership,

the registration of births and deaths, and school attendance. As

positions hardened, the conflict, often violent, intensified and

continued unabated for the better part of a century, until an accord

was finally negotiated in the mid-1980s.

Negotiating Buck Naked examines the accord closely. Why did

the violence end? How was the accord reached? What factors enabled it

to succeed when numerous other interventions had failed? How did it

change the patterns of conflict between the factions? To answer these

questions, Cran develops a theoretical framework for understanding the

process of dispute resolution, emphasizing that competing discourses

are juxtaposed and that it is these different but equally valid

narratives that must be negotiated. Using this approach, Cran extracts

from the Doukhobor conflict valuable lessons for understanding the

nature of both terrorism and hegemonic practices, and traces how we

view conflict and intervention from a Western perspective.

Negotiating Buck Naked offers new ways of dealing with

conflicts considered to be intractable. It will be useful to conflict

resolution practitioners, policy makers, peace makers, and peace
