This book provides a comprehensive guide to understanding conflict resolution in today's global world. In the first part, Peter Wallensteen introduces the fields of conflict resolution as they have developed since the end of the Cold War and demonstrates various approaches to conflict analysis and conflict resolution. The core of the book explores three major types of international conflict: inter-state; internal; and state formation conflicts. The final part reviews regional and international approaches to peaceful conflict resolution, notably the UN, discusses the concerns of the major powers in conflict, and outlines pertinent questions for the future.

Understanding Conflict Resolution will be an essential text for all students, teachers and researchers of international and global politics.

Recensione:

`As one might expect from Peter Wallensteen this is a study distinguished by keen insight and sophisticated analysis. It is imbued with a deep sense of moral seriousness and will be essential reading for all those who wish to deepen their understanding of contemporary conflict' - Andrew Mack, University of British Columbia, Vancouver

`This broad and extremely sensible look at the processes and possibilities of international conflict resolution fills a serious niche in scholarship and policy understanding. It deserves very wide attention.' - Bruce Russett, Yale University

`Understanding Conflict Resolution is a wide-ranging treatise that marries

carefully written case studies to theories of conflict resolution in a way

that illuminates both. Experts will find new insights and students will

benefit from a clear exposition.' - Michael Doyle, Princeton University
