This book by Stephen W. Littlejohn and Kathy Domenici is written from the authors' personal experiences in conflict intervention. Using a communication perspective, the authors examine methods of private mediation, small group facilitation, system design, large-scale interventions, and public issue management. They offer encouragement for a world seemingly overwhelmed by conflict and present an expanded and pragmatic definition of peace. The authors discuss numerous methods and principles in conflict resolution, including transformative mediation, the team mediation system, assessment and evaluation, systemic design, gaming methodology, issue framing and public deliberation, study circles, and dialogue groups. They also describe their own innovative approaches adapted from these methods.
