About the Author

KENNETH CLOKE director of the Center for Dispute Resolution in Santa Monica, California, has been a mediator, arbitrator, university professor, judge, counselor, coach, consultant, trainer, and designer of resolutions systems for over thirty years. He is the author of several books, including Resolving Conflicts at Work and Resolving Personal and Organizational Conflict (both with Joan Goldsmith, Jossey-Bass, 2000).


"Mediating Dangerously is, as all of Cloke's books, a book to buy." (The Texas Mediator, January 2002) "Cloke writes with passion...." (Dispute Resolution Journal, October 2002) "If you want to stretch your thinking about the art of mediation, Ken Cloke's new book is for you. Mediating Dangerously is packed with enough thought-provoking ideas for ten books." ?William Ury, author, The Third Side: Why We Fight and How We Can Stop "Cloke has tremendous insight into the psychology of the mediation process and its potential for profound impact on the mediator as well as the disputing parties. One of the most provocative and useful new books in the field." ?Christopher Moore, managing partner, CDR Associates, and author of The Mediation Process: Practical Strategies for Resolving Conflict Mediating Dangerously presents an invaluable mediating model and process for systemic change and conflict resolution. Kenneth Cloke's ideas can be applied to developing new justice models and addressing racism, xenophobia, ethnic and national minority conflict, and international conflict. His approach is inspiring and innovative." ?Ray Schonholtz, president, Partners for Democratic Change "Shows how a trained ear, an open mind, a respectful and intuitive stance, and humane values can lay the foundation for a broad and flexible repertoire of effective third-party practices." ?Laura Chasin, director, Public Conversations Project, Watertown, Massachusetts "Gather a few friends and colleagues around the fireplace, break open a bottle of sherry, pick a chapter of Ken Cloke's Mediating Dangerously and prepare for an evening of mind-sparking conversation." ?Albie Davis
