Peace through Agreement: Replacing War with Non-Violent Dispute-Resolution Methods

Synopsis

Rabow reveals how any dispute, including those that lead to serious confrontation between nations, can be resolved through the proper management of informed self-interest. He demonstrates how the utilizing of negotiation, mediation, and arbitration techniques, as well as a sound analytic understanding of "non-zero-sum" conflicts can achieve peace. He shows, through analogous "non-zero-sum" games, that cooperation between conflicting factions is much more successful than is generally believed. Through the playing of these games, the reader can experience conflict resolution in a controlled setting.
