    DescriptionInternationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels, Lederach offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict, from those that harm interpersonal relationships to those which overtake warring nations. This clearly articulated statement offers a hopeful and workable approach to conflict-- that eternally beleaguering human situation. John Paul Lederach is internationally recognized for his breakthrough thinking and action related to conflict on all levels--person-to-person, factions within communities, warring nations. He explores why "conflict transformation" is more appropriate than "conflict resolution" or "management." But he refuses to be drawn into impractical idealism. Conflict Transformation is an idea with a deep reach. Its practice, says Lederach, requires "both solutions and social change." It asks not simply "How do we end something not desired?," but "How do we end something destructive and build something desired?" How do we deal with the immediate crisis, as well as the long-term situation? What disciplines make such thinking and practices possible? A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.

    Review quote
    "What I see is that our human community, local and global, is on the edge of historical change: Patterns of violence and coercion will be replaced with respect, creative problem-solving, individual and social capacities for dialogue, and nonviolent systems for assuring human security and social change."
