SUMMARY

The post-Cold War era has given rise to new issues and disputes. Ethnic and nationalist violence disturb the peace and pose special problems for the strongest states and the United Nations. Beyond Confrontation gives an overview of possible conflict resolution techniques that can be used to help manage and prevent these kinds of disputes in today's new world order. It outlines how to go beyond power politics and establish a politics of resolution. During the Cold War, traditional techniques of conflict resolution were neglected since they were thought to be irrelevant and generally inapplicable to the relations between states. In the meantime, a vast literature and practice on conflict resolution has grown up on the domestic level that has been largely ignored by international politics specialists. The contributors to this volume cull this literature for the insights it can shed on the process of developing worldwide stability. Moreover, they go beyond traditional discipline boundaries and bring to bear the best current work in political science, social psychology, law, management, sociology, and ethics on the important task of creating a more peaceful world order. Contributors include James Turner Johnson, John A. Vasquez, Robert A. Baruch Bush, Ronald J. Fisher, Deborah M. Kolb, Eileen E Babbitt, Louis Kriesberg, Dean G. Pruitt, John W. Burton, and Charles E Doran. John A.
