"The Dynamics of Conflict" is a very important read for anyone who works with people in conflict". (Peter Salem, executive director, Association of Family and Conciliation Courts). "In his latest book, Mayer explores the theoretical underpinnings of conflict as it relates to cognitive, emotional, and behavioral dimensions. Personal stories and examples provide practical skills in communication and negotiation, including how to deal with power, impasse, and cross-cultural issues. The book is a must-read for conflict resolution professionals and will also be easily understandable to the public at large - a great tool for businesses, parents, governmental agencies, mental health professionals, and educators"" ;
