This book examines the ideas, assumptions, and theories that underpin how leaders of parties in intractable conflicts begin and sustain a process of peacemaking by offering to their adversaries "olive branches"--in more modern terms symbolic gestures, concessions, tension reducing moves, or confidence building measures. It discusses means of overcoming political and psychological barriers to accurate communication, building trust, forming domestic consensus, and creating "ripe" conditions for conciliation, suggesting practice guidelines for accommodation.

'...a significant contribution...Mitchell's...rich examination of a wide range of variables involved in the contemplation and implementation of such moves deserves to be read by practitioners and students of conflict resolution alike. This book should become a required text in graduate courses on the techniques of successful conflict resolution.' - Paul D. Senese, American Political Science
'...worth reading for a mature and rational discussion of how conciliatory gestures can be initiated.' - Undala Alam, International Affairs
'...the most complete and comprehensive account of conciliation available, rescuing the concept from relative anonymity and providing a platform of researchers, policy makers, teachers, trainers and active peacemakers to learn from and build on. - Tom Woodhouse, Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology
