Beyond Machiavelli: Tools for Coping with Conflictby Roger Fisher, Elizabeth Kopelman, Andrea Kupfer Schneider
"Fisher and two colleagues associated with the Harvard Negotiation Project, Harvard Law School, spell out conflict resolution techniques useful at the international level, and also in other contexts."Book News, Inc.
Beyond Machiavelli compellingly lays out means to analyze and solve international disputes: if enough of the world's leaders proceeded in such clear, logical directions, the world's reporters would have less to report.
Anybody who reads the newspaper headlines and understands that conflicts—whether in the Middle East, the former Yugoslavia or right in his or her neighborhood—cause tremendous human suffering can appreciate this book… [It] is an important tool for civic and government leaders, students, academics and researchers, dispute resolution practitioners, journalists, diplomats, and anybody who cares to give conflict resolution a serious thought.
[Beyond Machiavelli] offers a clear approach for dealing with conflicts of interest of any kind, particularly focusing on how to help with the persistent and complex political and economic conflicts that, unfortunately, appear to plague the world today. Probably the first primer about conflict management on a global scale. Urgently needs to be widely read.
