Overview of Conflict: From Analysis to Intervention

The twentieth century was an epoch of extraordinary barbarism and bloodshed. Two major world wars decimated populations and over 150 smaller wars were fought in more than 75 countries. Many of these conflicts were internal and over 90 percent of the casualties have been civilians. The key question for this millennium is how to ensure that human beings learn from past mistakes and solve their problems creatively and nonviolently.

This textbook is dedicated to conflict analysis and resolution. What can this interdisciplinary and expanding field contribute to our understanding of, solutions to, or transformations of some of the most pressing problems that confront human societies?

The contributors to this revised second edition, a team of international experts with both academic and professional experience in the field, provide a broad range of geographical and disciplinary perspectives. Covering theory, research, and practice, they analyze the different types of conflict and offer a thorough examination of the causes-structural, situational, strategic, and cultural. Exploring conflict management and resolution, they also discuss negotiation, mediation, peace-keeping, and peace-building.
