Constructive conflicts : from escalation to resolution by Louis Kriesberg( Book )

46 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 1,028 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive and highly regarded book provides a framework for analyzing diverse social conflicts. The fourth edition of Constructive Conflicts maintains the book's synthesis of theories about conflict, with key updates throughout. These include a more reader-friendly first chapter, new examples such as the Arab Spring, expanded discussions of recovery from violence and oppression, of reconciliation, and of moral concerns, and new discussions of social media and other ways conflicts are waged. Constructive Conflicts draws from relevant academic disciplines and empirical analyses of diverse conflicts to discuss the emergence, escalation, de-escalation, transformation, and settlement of conflicts. Throughout, the authors examine the strategies that partisans and intermediaries can use to minimize the destructiveness and foster constructive ways to wage and resolve conflict
Mothers in poverty; a study of fatherless families by Louis Kriesberg( Book )

22 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Kriesberg explores in this book the many myths about the poor, the welfare dependents, and the husbandless mothers. The evidence marshalled does not support the idea that people continue on welfare generation after generation, that the children of broken families have disrupted marriages themselves, that the poor seek out public housing and public assistance because they prefer such dependency, or that husbandless mothers all have lower educational goals for their children than do married mothers. Beginning with major theoretical issues, Kriesberg developed hypotheses about the life of the poor and culture of poverty; the hypotheses were tested with data from a study of families in public housing projects."--Provided by publisher

International conflict resolution : the U.S.-USSR and Middle East cases by Louis Kriesberg( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the cold war comes to an end, world attention focuses even more on tensions in the Middle East. This timely and important book examines both the U.S.-USSR and Arab-Israeli conflicts since 1948 and uses the history of their negotiations--one successful, the other less so--to establish principles that will be helpful in resolving international conflicts now and in the future. Written by an authority on conflict resolution, the book is the first to emphasize the entire process of peacemaking instead of just one of its aspects. Examining the many de-escalation efforts in the U.S.-USSR and Arab-Israeli conflicts, Louis Kriesberg analyzes why initiatives are taken, why some initiatives are followed by negotiations and others are not, why some negotiations conclude in explicit agreements and others do not, and why some agreements become the basis for additional peacemaking moves and others do not even endure. Applying insights from theories of conflict resolution and international relations, Kriesberg builds and tests a general theory of the process of conflict termination, deepening our understanding of specific efforts toward peacemaking and drawing inferences about de-escalation strategies for policy making. In an epilogue, Kriesberg discusses the war in the Persian Gulf and shows how its resolution illustrates the relevance of the insights he provides

Conflict transformation and peacebuilding : moving from violence to sustainable peace by Bruce W Dayton( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to examine the causes of escalation and de-escalation in intrastate conflicts. Specifically, the volume seeks to map the processes and dynamics that lead groups challenging existing power structures to engage in violent struggle; the processes and dynamics that contribute to the de-escalation of violent struggle and the participation of challengers in peaceful political activities; and the processes and dynamics that sustain and nurture this transformation. By integrating the latest ideas with richly presented case studies, this volume fills a gap in our understanding of the forces that lead to moderation and constructive engagement in the context of violent, intrastate conflicts."--Jacket
Realizing peace : a constructive conflict approach by Louis Kriesberg( Book )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Realizing Peace combines three bodies of work that have not previously been integrated. First, it critically examines major episodes of U.S. government engagements in foreign conflicts since the beginning of the Cold War. This includes American engagements in struggles against adversaries, interventions among adversaries, and mediations between adversaries. Second, Realizing Peace also examines the efforts of non-governmental organizations and non-official individuals in advancing peace in foreign conflicts. Third, it traces and applies the developing fields of peace studies and conflict resolution, synthesized in the constructive conflict approach, to evaluate those American engagements. Using the constructive conflict approach, the book draws on its insights and research findings to make critical assessments of American engagements. Realizing Peace suggests alternative strategies that would be more effective and yield more beneficial results than did many of the strategies that had been pursued. A major set of episodes discussed in this book pertain to Americans' engagements in the Cold War, through its escalations and de-escalations, its final transformation, and subsequent American-Russian interactions. Multiple analyses also relate to conflicts with Panama, Al Qaeda, Iraq, North Korea, and Iran. In addition, interventions in Yugoslavia, Haiti, and elsewhere are examined. Finally, several mediation efforts in the Israeli-Arab/Palestinian conflicts are critically discussed. The analyses incorporate consideration of the American political circumstances and the evolving global context"--

Louis Kriesberg : pioneer in peace and constructive conflict resolution studies by Louis Kriesberg( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of his 90th birthday Louis Kriesberg provides an informative account of his career, tracing the trajectory of his discoveries, contributions, and stumbles as he sought to help the advance toward a more sustainable and just peace in the world. His work contributes to ideas and practices in several areas of conflict studies, notably intractable conflicts and their transformation, reconciliation, conflict analysis, and waging conflicts constructively. Although neither an autobiography nor a memoir, he embeds the course of his work in the context of historical events and in the evolving fields of peace studies and conflict resolution. In addition, he discusses the interaction of those fields with major conflicts. The book includes seven previously-published exemplary pieces on these and other topics, a comprehensive list of his publications, and several photos. A discussion of Kriesberg's work and its significance is provided by George A. Lopez, Professor of Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame.
