"An amazing volume with chapters and commentaries written by the very top negotiation scholars in the world. The book reviews and integrates state-of-the-art research and develops implications for the future of the negotiation field. It gives insightful, practical implications addressing many of the most challenging issues of the 21st century, i.e. how to negotiate agreements in an era of globalized competition, emerging and crisis economies, increased national and other cultural-diversity in the workplace, and frame-breaking, new technologies that often serve as channels of communication. Don't overlook this one!" - M. Susan Taylor, Smith Chair of Human Resource Management & Organizational Change & Co-Director of CLIC, University of Maryland

"21st century negotiation involves complex combinations of social networks, culturally and demographically diverse organizations, global business relationships, as well as a heavy reliance on technologically-mediated communications.

Buchanan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Dispute Resolution and Organization, Northwestern University

In bringing together some of the world's best organizational scholars, this book studies the essence of effective management — effective negotiations.

"Negotiation as a management skill is critical.  This book is a well-needed update of the literature, research, and practical implications for negotiators in organizataions.  The line-up of expert authors is commendable, providing much-needed insights based on negotiation research for employees and managers and future directions for researchers.  The inclusion of justice issues, emotion, and procedural strategies and responses is exactly what the field, and organizations, need at this point in time." - Karen Jehn, Melbourne Business School, Australia
