Praise for The Handbook of Conflict Resolution, Second Edition
"The Handbook of Conflict Resolution offers an astonishing array of insightful articles on theory and practice by leading scholars and practitioners. Students, professors, and professionals alike can learn a great deal from studying this handbook."
—William Ury, director, Global Negotiation Project, Harvard University; coauthor, Getting to Yes and author, The Third Side
"The first edition of the Handbook was an impressive, important book. The second edition is even more comprehensive, addressing many forms of conflict: interpersonal, organizational, intractable conflict between groups, and international conflicts, and issues from the intrapsychic to the cultural. The book connects knowledge base in research with theory, and theory with practice. This is a book that will be of great value to anyone concerned with conflict and will significantly move the field forward."
—Ervin Staub, professor of psychology, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; author, The Psychology of Good and Evil: Why Children, Adults, and Groups Help and Harm Others; former president of the International Society of Political Psychology
"Professor Morton Deutsch is one of the greatest contributors of the twenty-first century to the important and crucial field of conflict resolution. His contributions have been in theory and practice, in attracting outstanding people to work with him, in stimulating superb people to carry on in their own paths. The net effect is a truly major contribution to this field, and it is summed up beautifully in the revised and enlarged second edition. Highly informative, profoundly insightful, and, indeed, definitive account of conflict resolution."
—David A. Hamburg, president emeritus, Carnegie Corporation of New York; DeWitt Wallace Distinguished Scholar; and cochair, Social Medicine and Public Policy Programs, Department of Psychiatry, New York Presbyterian Hospital and Cornell University Medical College
