Learning Lessons from Waco: When the Parties Bring Their Gods to the Negotiation Tableby Jayne Seminare Docherty
Docherty (conflict studies, Eastern Mennonite U., Virginia) examines the negotiations and battle that took place between federal officials and Branch Davidians in Waco in 1993, which led to the death of over 70 people. She applies a theory of worldview conflict to the 12,000- some pages of negotiation transcripts from the events and analyzes the activities of law enforcement agents, showing how the conflict resulted from a collision of two distinct worldviews and their divergent notions of reality.
