Recensioner i media

"Thoroughly recommended for all conflict resolution workers whether in academe, government or other parliamentary organisations, civil service, military departments, and NGOs and their supporters. Indeed, anyone prepared to study it in any depth would be amply rewarded." Medicine, Conflict and Survival "There is no more definitive text. It is impressive in its clarity, comprehensiveness, and ability to incorporate a historical overview of each area as well as the latest thinking and debates." Oliver Richmond, Director, Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of St Andrews "This new third edition confirms the stellar place of this book on the bookshelf of every scholar and practitioner in the field of conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Nowhere else will you find such a comprehensive overview of the history of the field and its current methodologies, as well as entirely new chapters dedicated to the most pertinent issues of today, including the environment, gender, religion and the media. A must read - a hugely important resource for us all." Mari Fitzduff, Brandeis University "Contemporary Conflict Resolution has become an institution for teachers, students and researchers of armed conflict, conflict resolution and peacebuilding. This third edition - significantly revised and expanded, with a number of entirely new chapters - provides an excellent survey of the key theories, debates and cases in this area of scholarship. The inclusion of chapters on the environment , religion, culture, the media and language demonstrates that this volume is as innovative as it is comprehensive. It manages to be both a textbook and a volume that projects coherent and sometimes provocative arguments." Edward Newman, University of Birmingham "This is a thorough and well-written introduction to contemporary conflict resolution, which offers a distinctive perspective based on the notion of 'cosmopolitan conflict resolution'. It will be of great interest to students of peace and conflict studies." Adrian G. V. Hyde-Price, University of Bath
