About the Author:

Bruce E. Barnes is Associate Professor of conflict resolution at the Matsunaga Institute for Peace. He has over 22 years of experience in mediation, facilitation, and ADR training in a wide range of Asian and Pacific organizations. He earned his LL.M. from Columbia University, and his J.D. and M.Ed. from the University of Hawai'i.

Review:

How can people, businesses and governments effectively resolve intense private and public controversies in increasingly multicultural societies? [This] splendid path breaking book shines bright light on this topic. Bridging the theoretical and practical with "action research," and with seven Asian countries and Hawai`i as focal points, Barnes both unravels the emerging dangers of cultural conflicts and offers fresh insights into diverse Asian dispute resolution concepts and practices. A must read for everyone interested in multicultural dispute resolution. (Eric K. Yamamoto, Professor of Law and author of Interracial Justice: Conflict and Reconciliation in Post-Civil Rights America winner of the Gusta)

Chapters focus upon the practices of each nation in turn, and over thirty case studies robustly illuminate the points and suggestions that can be learned for global application. An advanced reference and resource especially recommended for study and reference by aspiring and professional mediators, whether in law, social work, or other fields. (Midwest Book Review)

Barnes' tour of the Asian Pacific and its disputing and mediation styles is eye-opening. (Asian Criminology)

Many Americans seem to think mediation, the act of assisting others to negotiate peaceful and tractable solutions to their problems, is [newly] invented. Actually, it is an ancient and honored craft that spans 40,000 years of human history and the world's 4000 known culture and language groups. Bruce Barnes gives us a whirlwind tour of the intricate...forms mediation takes in the Asia and Pacific regions...More importantly, he...explains why culture and negotiation are inescapably braided together. (Peter S. Adler, Ph.D., President, The Keystone Center)

Book Description University Press of America, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The countries of China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand are brought together for the first time in an integrated and systematic work outlining each country's cultural themes, cultural practices, and preferred conflict resolution mechanisms. The new "ADR" processes and centuries-old mediation and conciliation systems used in these countries are compared with the evolving mediation and ADR systems, including facilitation in North America and the West. This comprehensive study analyzes the cultural "themes" commonly found in these countries' religious conflicts; and presents over 30 different stories, case studies, and conflict resolution scenarios from the region. Culture, Conflict, and Mediation in the Asian Pacific looks beyond traditional regional boundaries to group Hawai'i with the nine Asian countries as an example of mediation systems and cultural influence on the most "Asian" of the U.S. states (over 2/3 of the population of Hawai'i is Asian-American).
