Constructive Conflicts: From Escalation to Resolution (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


Highly regarded by instructors as the most comprehensive and insightful textbook on conflict resolution, Constructive Conflicts has been significantly revised and updated in this second edition. The new edition builds on the strengths of the first, 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 constructive struggles. In this second edition to his highly recommended, leading textbook in conflict and peace studies by peaceful means Professor Kriesberg has included very valuable material on South Africa and apartheid, on the women's and Civil Rights movements in the USA and the justice and globalization movements. And, above all, on international terrorism and the al Qaeda network. In a dynamic world authors have to be equally dynamic. Professor Kriesberg is one of those.
