From the Back Cover:

A Groundbreaking Book

"The Barretts’ historical perspective demonstrates vividlythat the ‘ADR movement’ stems from roots that are deepand long-standing. The book is an informative treatise thathighlights ADR’s diverse precursors, as well as its dramaticrecent expansion and future promise."
–Charles Pou, Jr., Charles Pou Dispute Resolution Services,Washington, D.C.; former director, Dispute Resolution Program,Administrative Conference of the U.S.

"This book’s important message–that disputeresolution’s proponents need to pay more attention to thefield’s surprisingly long and checkered history–isillustrated by a trove of wide-ranging and lively stories."
–Chris Honeyman, mediator, arbitrator, and founder, ConvenorConflict Resolution, Madison, Wisconsin

"Barrett provides a fascinating account of the history ofdispute resolution. From ancient Greece to the twenty-firstcentury, sustainable solutions to conflicting interests have seldomresulted from raw exercise of power."
–John Stepp, former FMCS mediator and former assistantsecretary of labor, Washington, D.C.

"For senior practitioners as well as those new to the ADRcommunity, Barrett’s book makes an important contribution toan understanding of where this dynamic field has been and what liesahead for it."
–Wallace Warfield, associate professor, George MasonUniversity, Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, andformer president of SPIDR, Fairfax, Virginia

"Anyone who cares about alternative dispute resolution and itshistorical roots must read Jerry Barrett’s excellent book.Here is someone who was there, almost at the creation, and who hasseen how this field has grown, expanded, and changed and who hasmade great contributions to this field."
–Eileen Hoffman, mediator, trainer, adjunct professor of ADR,George Washington University Law School, and former SPIDRpresident, Washington, D.C.

"Finally, a history of our growing profession! Anyone whonegotiates, mediates, arbitrates, or leads collaborative orconsensus-building efforts will learn from this fascinating historyof one of the oldest professional activities–organizingdialogue and making peace."
–Juliana E. Birkhoff, senior mediator, RESOLVE, Washington,D.C.

From the Inside Flap:

Although the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) hasincreased dramatically in the past forty years, various forms ofconflict resolution have been used successfully for centuries bypeople around the globe–from ancient Greeks to the KalahariBushmen.

A History of Alternative Dispute Resolution offers acomprehensive review of the various types of peaceful practices forresolving conflicts. Written by Jerome Barrett–a longtimepractitioner, innovator, and leading historian in the field ofADR–and his son Joseph Barrett of the Wall Street Journal,this volume traces the evolution of the ADR process and offers anoverview of the precursors to ADR, including negotiation,arbitration, and mediation. The authors explore the colorfulbeginnings of ADR using illustrative examples from prehistoricShaman through the European Law Merchant. In addition, the bookoffers the historical context for the use of ADR in the arenas ofdiplomacy and business.

While exploring dispute resolution in other cultures, the bookalso offers an insightful examination of ADR in the United States.The authors discuss ADR in the context of America’s Civil Warand clearly illustrate both the limits and the promise of ADR. Thebook discusses the early struggles among the railroad workers andcoal miners that first opened the possibility of ADR use and thepassage of the Railroad Labor Act and the National Labor RelationsAct, which guaranteed the rights of workers and provided forconflict resolution processes. It also explores the expansion ofADR to other disputes, including the civil rights movement and thecultural revolution of the 1960s, and on to the flowering of ADR inthe past two decades in our communities, businesses, schools, andgovernment agencies.

A History of Alternative Dispute Resolution clearly demonstratesthat ADR has been successful in the past and can be our hope forthe future.
