More Praise for The Handbook of Conflict Resolution,
Second Edition
“Morton Deutsch, Peter Coleman, and Eric Marcus put together a handbook that will be helpful to many. I hope the book will reach well beyond North
America to contribute to the growing worldwide interest in the constructive resolution of conflict. This book offers instructive ways to make this commitment a reality.”
—George J. Mitchell, former majority leader of the
United States Senate; former chairman of the Peace
Negotiations in Northern Ireland and the International FactFinding Committee on Violence in the Middle East; chairman of the board, Walt Disney Company; senior fellow at the
School of International and Public Affairs,
Columbia University
“This volume is an extraordinary resource, a much-needed comprehensive handbook on conflict resolution.”
—Arthur E. Levine, president emeritus, Teachers College,
Columbia University; president, Woodrow Wilson
National Fellowship Foundation
“This Handbook should be on the reading list of every course in peace and conflict studies and especially on the lists used in teacher preparation courses in peace education, a field that seeks to cultivate understanding of constructive ways of confronting violence, alternatives to force and lethal conflict for the pursuit of social purposes.”
—Betty Reardon, founding director emeritus, Peace
Education Center, Teachers College, Columbia University
“In the past, I have been saying to all of my students at Kyushu University and the participants in my mediation trainings, ‘If you are serious about mediation, read The Handbook of Conflict Resolution.’ Now seeing the updated and enlarged second edition, I would say, ‘Read it, for it will help you become a thoughtful and insightful mediator.’”
—Hisako Kobayashi-Levin, associate professor,
Faculty of Law, Kyushu University
