The Psychology of Resolving Global Conflicts


A three-volume set co-edited by Mari Fitzduff, director of the master's program in Coexistence and Conflict at Brandeis University

December 30, 2005

A team of top experts from across the nation and around the world presents issues of war, conflict resolution, and stable peace. They explain how men and women are transformed into perpetrators of genocide, how neighbors become sworn enemies, the cultural and psychological origins of war, and even the neuropsychology of conflict. Considering these elements together allows us to understand more clearly the violent world that surrounds us, and serves as a precursor for examining models for resolving conflict and building peace. Finally, an exploration of what it means to wage a "successful" war holds profound implications about what a victory in the war against terrorism would look like.

These books bring attention to a variety of elements that will inform military studies, psychology, and sociology scholars and students. It will also inform researchers in many fields and at many levels who aim to understand the underlying causes of longstanding and emerging conflicts and the methods that may finally bring resolution and peace.
