What People are Saying About This
The scholarship is first-rate, thorough, and comprehensive. This work will be a significant contribution to the study, training and practice of conflict prevention. . . . Overall the original evidence, comprehensiveness, and integrative nature of the work are its best features.
These two volumes form an encyclopedic study of the means of conflict prevention. The first volume examines agents and institutions, the second causes and capacities. The choice of chapters to encompass the components of the subject is careful and comprehensive, and there is much bredth and wisdom in the chapters themselves. The volumes deserve a wide and bifocal audience. For analysts, the two volumes push back the frontiers into new aspects to study; for practitioners, they show that the challenge is in applying what we know aplenty, not in hiding behind claims of ignorance.
