"An excellent comprehensive survey and guide." (Morton Deutsch, professor, International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution, Teacher's College, Columbia University) Crawford and Bodine argue persuasively that schools can be active agents for social change and that schools can and should intervene in the lives of young people in a proactive manner. Schools, they contend, can teach alternatives to violence. Such and intervention should start in the early grades and be approached systematically throughout the school curriculum. A major contribution of the book is the practical advice it provides to those who want to start conflict resolution programs in schools. From program design to an extensive list of resources, Crawford and Bodine provide many excellent examples of current best thinking and current best practice concerning conflict resolution programs in schools. (Thomas J. Switzer, dean, College of Education, University of Northern Iowa)
