Publisher Marketing: Broadly defining "conflict resolution," James A. Schellenberg gives systematic coverage to five main ways people may try to resolve their conflicts: coercion, negotiation, adjudication, mediation, and arbitration. The main theories of conflict, both classic and contemporary, are reviewed under four main categories: individual characteristics theories, social process theories, social structural theories, and formal theories. Scholarly work in the study of conflict has expanded greatly in recent decades, as has the work of professionals who apply their efforts to the area of conflict resolution. However, there is relatively little contact between the academics and the conflict resolution professionals. The primary purpose of the present book is to fill this need for bridging the gap between scholarly theory and research, on the one hand, and, on the other, practical work in conflict resolution.
