First published in 1999, this volume examines ways in which adversarial relationships can be transformed and reconciled in diverse settings. It is intended to enhance our understanding of the nature of structural transformation as well as the processes for changing psychological relations between adversaries. Conflict resolution is ingrained in the analysis of inter-group dynamics as well as the process and outcome of negotiating different values and incompatible interests. The Contributors to the volume include Christopher Mitchell, Tarja Väyrynen, Ronald J. Fisher, Louis Kriesberg, Malvern Lumsden, E. Franklin Dukes and Richard E. Rubenstein.


’…this volume answers the challenge of forming a systematic way of thinking about and creating conceptual strategies for a future knowledge bank of conflict resolution practice. This body of work further encourages theorists and practitioners to continue the dialogue.’ Ethnic Conflict ’…offers a characteristically original analysis…’ Political Studies
