As the war on terror dominates world headlines and conflicts of all kinds abound, this No-Nonsense Guide provides a refreshing antidote. Can conflict be prevented? If not, how can it be contained?

Drawing on the authors’ wide range of experience, from the UN to the local village, Conflict and Peace will help readers to understand why conflicts persist—and how they can be transformed.

Reviews
