Wallensteen's updated version of Understanding Conflict Resolution keeps true to its form of providing students and scholars a way to think about managing conflicts from a systematic perspective. He develops not only the historical roots of the study of conflict management, but also provides the contemporary stetting where these core ideas apply. Knowing the development of the field also allows us to view the intellectual progress we have made over 50+ years, progress which he has been so much a part of.
There is no better introduction to the empirically based study of conflict resolution than Wallensteen's. This new edition builds upon the strengths of the earlier editions and in clear and engaging language analyses conflict theory and the myriad of tools available to states, regional and global organizations to confront and address the challenges of resolving conflicts.
Understanding Conflict Resolution is valuable as a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the topic and as a volume that encapsulates the wisdom and experience of one of peace research’s most influential figures. It will assist instructors to transmit the progress and values of scholarly research into conflict resolution to a new generation of students in the field.
This text book will be a useful resource for students who want to search how various conflict management tools have been applied and the context behind it.
