The second part of a set of four volumes which seeks to provide an historical and theoretical perspective for consideration of theory and practice in conflict resolution and provention. The other volumes cover resolution and provention, and readings and practices in management and resolution in addition to a detailed description of the facilitated conflict resolution process. The idea put forward by this book is that an adequate theory of behaviour is required to provide a basis for the analysis and resolution of conflict, and particularly for prediction of conflict and a guide to conflict provention.
