Part of the The Conflict Series book series (CONFLICT)


The purpose of this collection of essays, along with the three other books in this Conflict Series, is to provide the student, the practitioner and the general reader with a start-up library on this new subject, conflict and its resolution. We have sought to cover the subject fully and have separated the contribution into six parts: Beginnings; Crisis; Analysis; Applications; Research; and Political Implications.
