Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
     
     Internationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels, Lederach offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict, from those that harm interpersonal relationships to those which overtake warring nations.

     
     This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict— that eternally beleaguering human situation. 
     
     John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels—person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations. He explores why "conflict transformation" is more appropriate than "conflict resolution" or "management." But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism. 
     
     Conflict Transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires "both solutions and social change." It asks not simply "How do we end something not desired?", but "How do we end something destructive and build something desired?" How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible?

Review:
This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict—that eternally beleaguering human situation.

John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels—person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations.

He explores why "conflict transformation" is more appropriate than "conflict resolution" or "management." But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism.

Conflict Transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires "both solutions and social change." It asks not simply, "How do we end something not desired?", but "How do we end something destructive and build something desired?" How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible?

John Paul Lederach, now a scholar with the Joan Kroc Institute of Conflict Studies at the University of Notre Dame and a Distinguished Scholar with the Conflict Transformation Program at Eastern Mennonite University, writes out of his more than 20 years of work in Central America, in Asia, Africa, Central Asia, and North America.
