About the Authors
  • From family feuds to labor strikes and international warfare, human conflict is an ever-present and universal social problem and the methods to manage it are a challenge for everyone, from average citizens to policymakers and social theorists. This study will educate students about how and why conflict erupts, and under what conditions it can be managed. It is a unique classroom book blending theory and practical application and the first to bridge the science of social theory and the art of practice for students.

    • The authors' insights into conflict are summarized in easy to understand diagrams
    • These diagrams provide tools that can be used to understand any conflict
    • The authors describe and analyze three real-life conflicts in great detail
