Conflict Resolution: Cross-Cultural Perspectives

Synopsis

This unique collection of comparable case studies addresses the need to assess modes of conflict resolution in a larger sociocultural context with attention to varying approaches and cultural perspectives. Editors Avruch, Black, and Scimecca, along with other anthropologists and sociologists, propose and test different propositions, while looking toward a general theory of conflict and conflict resolution. They offer a broad range of vantage points for considering conflict resolution in five different cultures. Conflict resolution is seen as an emerging discipline.
