"An excellent comprehensive survey and guide." (Morton Deutsch, professor, International Center for Cooperation and ConflictResolution, Teacher's College, Columbia University)

Crawford and Bodine argue persuasively that schools can be activeagents for social change and that schools can and should intervenein the lives of young people in a proactive manner. Schools, theycontend, can teach alternatives to violence. Such and interventionshould start in the early grades and be approached systematicallythroughout the school curriculum. A major contribution of the bookis the practical advice it provides to those who want to startconflict resolution programs in schools.
