Abstract:

Culture and Negotiation was the outcome of cooperation between UNESCO and IIASA. The cultural factors bearing on international negotiations are a topic of importance, not least in the environmental field. The book's strength is its combination of a lucid and comprehensive discussion of issues and concepts with a series of case studies concerning specific rivers and the people who live and produce on their banks and tributaries. The result throws interesting light on the cultural parameters of human agreement and discord, and offers useful, practical pointers for the art of negotiation.
