5.0 out of 5 stars A Subtle and Provactive Look at Conflict Resolution Oct. 22 2013
By Matthew Wesley - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book challenges the reader to move away from a purely linear view of conflict resolution and to view that process through different metaphoric lenses. In seeing the circular nature of the process and the role that sound plays in the process of reconciliation, the Lederach's (father and daughter) weave together a range of alternative processes to resolve seemingly intractable conflict. The stories they tell and the metaphors they explore themselves reflect a different way of seeing and thereby open new possibilities and wellsprings for unlocking the moral imaginations of those otherwise locked in conflict.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful synthesis April 28 2013
By P. K. Omidyar - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
How do we truly heal from conflict and build peace in meaningful ways? This is a beautiful and engaging book to read with moving stories of healing, interwoven with a theory of change that really resonates in how we can work at individual and collective levels to repair and heal the damage violent conflict causes. I've been a fan of Jean Paul Lederach ever since The Moral Imagination. This book really confirms for me why. Grateful.

The book came in fast, and it's very interesting for the class I'm taking. It's cheaper here than at my school, so don't hesitate if you want to save some cash.
