This title was first published in 2001. This volume of essays explores the theoretical and jurisprudential bases of mediated forms of dispute resolution, from legal, anthropological, sociological, psychological and political sources. It also presents ongoing disputes about the field itself, including its threat to conventional litigation and justice seeking adjudication, and its promise in providing more humane and tailored solutions to human problems.
