"The fourth edition of this ground-breaking textbook presents the field of conflict resolution in a world after the failure of the Arab Spring, the rise of ISIS, a newly aggressive Russia, and increasing tensions in the South China Sea. Recognizing the challenges such a world presents, the authors nevertheless remain committed to a cosmopolitan vision of the field as the indispensable alternative to that other vision: If you want peace, prepare for war." Kevin Avruch, School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, George Mason University "Contemporary Conflict Resolution, now updated with current research and new approaches to deeply difficult protracted conflicts, remains the most comprehensive, well-conceputalized and useful introductory text to the wider fields of peace and conflict studies. I highly recommend this book to students, professors, policymakers and practitioners, it is an invaluable resource." John Paul Lederach, Kroc Institute, University of Notre Dame
