"This book is an absolute must-have resource for anyoneinterested in the birth and history of conflict resolution as afield of study, as well as a lexicon of fundamental documents thatare currently shaping thinking and practice in the peacebuildingfield. It is a unique and inspiring testimony to many of thechallenges the field has faced, as well as demonstrating thestrategic import of todays scholars and practitioners about howbetter to address the resolution of conflicts around the worldtoday." Mari Fitzduff, Brandeis University "This book is indispensable for all teachers, researchers andpractitioners in the field of conflict resolution andpeace-building. It brings together seminal, defining texts so thatreaders can discern the genealogy of our interdisciplinary academicdiscipline. But it also directs our attention to a whole series oftried and tested practical measures for dealing with deep divisionand violence. By combining the readings into theory ,praxis ,peace-building and reconciliation this collection reminds us thatthis field is not only deeply analytical but also normative inintent. It does not succumb to the paralysing consequences ofrealist pessimism nor fall into any false idealist position. Itanalyses violence critically and provides hard and tested solutionsto deep rooted and intractable problems. I will be ordering it formyself and my library. It will find its way as a key text in ourfield." Kevin Clements, National Centre for Peace and ConflictStudies,University of Otago, New Zealand "Once again, Woodhouse et al. have produced an incredibleresource for the conflict resolution field. I have been usingvarious portions of Contemporary Conflict Resolution in my graduateclasses for years, and this new book complements it beautifully. Itbrings together in one volume an array of primary theories in thefield with current writing that highlights both questions andchallenges. My students are always asking ?is there a basic set ofreadings in conflict resolution?? and I?ll now be able to pointthem in the direction of this great new book!" Eileen F. Babbitt, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy,Tufts University
