This special issue of Peace and Conflict honors the critical role that Morton Deutsch, one of the world’s most respected scholars of confl ict resolution, has played in the development of the field. The guest editors present a biography of Deutsch, consisting of updated selections from an interview, as well as excerpts from his reflections on the history of experimental social psychology. Succeeding articles are authored by students of Deutsch and offer exploratory studies on the psychology of justice; a memoir describing Deutsch’s influence on the study of third-party conflict mediation; and a meta-framework for addressing protracted, intractable conflicts. Pioneers in Peace Psychology captures the essential character and significance of Deutsch’s mentoring.
