Industry Reviews

The scholarship is first-rate, thorough, and comprehensive. This work will be a significant contribution to the study, training and practice of conflict prevention.... I regard the theoretical discussion in the second volume among its greatest strengths' overall the original evidence, comprehensiveness, and integrative nature of the work are its best features.--Franke Wilmer, Director and Professor, Political Science, Montana State University, Bozeman
